Dynamo Daily - May 5, 2010

The Dynamo will take on FC Dallas tonight for the rights to El Capitán. Tonight’s match will be the second in a stretch of four matches in 13 days for Houston. After a crucial mistake in FC Dallas’s 1-1 tie to New England on Saturday, goalkeeper Dario Sala could find his starting spot in jeopardy tonight.

Dynamo players look to continue the momentum built after their 3-0 win against Kansas City. With the win against the Wizards, Houston surged to fourth in MLSsoccer.com’s weekly power rankings.

Although he is healthy enough to take the field as a substitute tonight, it is unlikely Brian Ching will play against FC Dallas. Ching still hopes to get named to Bob Bradley’s 30-man provisional roster next Tuesday. Ching also acknowledged that after the 2010 World Cup, he is likely to retire from international competitions.

Geoff Cameron was touched by the fans' support at the game on Saturday. For those unaware, the white “No. 20” placards held up in the 21st minute were in honor of Cameron, who is out at least four months with an injury sustained against the Chicago Fire. Cameron spoke in-depth with Glenn Davis about the injury and the recovery process.
