In order to stay fit during the three-week break for the World Cup, the Houston Dynamo will travel to Corpus Christi tomorrow night to face the Laredo Heat in the Ryan-Sanders Shootout.

After losing their third straight match, the Dynamo fell to 11th in the latest power rankings on MLSsoccer.com.

For soccer fans looking for a place to watch Saturday’s match between the United States and England, look no farther than Discovery Green. The Houston Dynamo will be hosting a viewing party from noon to 4 p.m. that will feature a Budweiser Beer Garden, McDonald’s Kids Zone, and a guest appearance by midfielder Geoff Cameron.

Sunil Gulati, president of the United States Soccer Federation, believes that the development and growth of Major League Soccer are directly linked to the success of the U.S. national team.

Players from the national team sat down for a roundtable with media members to discuss their feelings heading into Saturday’s clash with England. Jeff Carlisle reports that the players are confident and prepared for England and striker Wayne Rooney. The Americans must be cautious on Saturday though, as referee Carlos Simon is quick to pull out yellow and red cards.

The Jabulani ball that will be used during the World Cup has caused much controversy over the past few months, as Japanese researchers proved that the ball travels more erratically than usual and doesn’t proved the stable flight that Adidas claims.
