Three Dynamo players feature in latest World Cup qualifiers
The second series of CONCACAF Hexagonal matches are in the books, with three Dynamo players featuring for their respective national over the past week.
After not dressing for Friday's USMNT match vs. Costa Rica, Dynamo midfielder Brad Davis came off the bench Tuesday night, in the 0-0 draw vs. Mexico. Davis played the final 19 minutes of the match, manning both the left and right flanks. The Dynamo midfielder picked up a late yellow card for a tackle on Andres Guardado.

Elsewhere around CONCACAF, Jermaine Taylor played 90 minutes in both of Jamaica's World Cup qualifiers. The Reggae Boyz tied Panama 1-1 on Friday, before losing to Costa Rica 2-0 on Tuesday.
Boniek Garcia also added two more caps to his resume, playing 90 minutes in both of Honduras' Hexagonal matches. Los Catrachos came from behind to tie Mexico 2-2 in San Pedro Sula on Friday, before falling on the road to Panama 2-0 on Tuesday.
After three matches, Davis' USMNT and Garcia's Honduras are in a three-way tie for second place in their group. Taylor's Jamaica is currently in last place with only two points.
