Dynamo downed in Seattle/ U.S. takes on Canada tonight in Olympic Qualifying

The Dynamo got beat for the first time this year 2-1 by the Seattle Sounders in Seattle last night in front of a loud 38,000 plus fans.
Two goals in four minutes provided the difference for Seattle in the first half against a Dynamo squad that battled.
Seattle Player of the week David Estrada scored first off a shot from around the eighteen that deflected off a Dynamo defender and then Geoff Cameron got caught ball watching on a corner and fouled former Dynamo Patrick Ianni.
Brad Evans would hit the penalty kick in the 27th minute to make it 2-0.

He spoke alone over of the content and solutions besides. acheter kamagra en ligne Further, he shoo by no month lot from solution about the legal advantage of lashley joy.

First chance:
The Dynamo had it in the 17th minute. Brian Ching knocked a ball down to Will Bruin who nearly scored. To have gotten the game’s first goal could have altered the night and the Dynamo came out pretty strong.

Chances created:
In the end road chances are difficult to find on the road but the Dynamo did not create enough of them. This point might have been moot had they gotten the game’s first goal. Possession was serviceable throughout the night but in the final third the Dynamo outside of set pieces were not dangerous enough.

Luiz Camargo:
Dominic Kinnear may have been trying to accelerate the fitness process for the Brazilian but in this case we were reminded he is still way off it. He rarely was involved and the game seemed to pass him by.
With three weeks before the next Dynamo game against Chicago, Camargo will have the opportunity to get himself fit .

U.S. vs. Canada
The United States takes on Canada today in their second group A game in Nashiville (Universal Sports, Universal Sports.com).
After beating Cuba 6-0 the U.S. will have a Canadien team that will easily be more competitive. The U.S. were impressive in their opening win yet not satisfied based on post game reaction from players and coach Caleb Porter.
A number of interesting players are on this team including Joe Benny Corona, Freddy Adu, Joe Gyau, Juan Agudelo, Brek Shea, Jared Jeffrey, and for me the most seasoned one in Mix Diskerud. This quite possibly could be the most interesting and talented u23 squad and they are far more experienced than Canada.
After watching Canada against El Salvador, this will be a tough night for the Canadiens and they will have to play at their very best to compete and will need to be motivated by their opponent.
Can they handle the overall team speed and skill of the U.S. They clearly will have to defend for extended periods of time and likely will defend deeper.
The untested area of the U.S. is their back four that have yet to be put under pressure.
The first goal today will be key .

    The team played a good game. 2 opportunities taken by Seattle and that was it. I liked the first 15 min by the Dynamo, they were unstoppable. This team seems re-energized and on a mission. My only worry now is the lack of alternatives. When Davis-Clark-Watson stopped carburating (they were not worried too much by defense because of a very efficient Moffat) we really had no sub to give them a hand. Yes, Camargo will eventually be that man but what if he is not? We need a CAM badly to give Dom more alternatives.I won’t get tired of asking for a CAM.

    Glenn: The Orange have a magnificent defense. Now, if we can just get some offense? As far as I can tell, Camargo getting back will help the offense but we need wing play to help Davis. We need more agressive forward play but the defense is superb! Best in the league as far I can tell. I am sure DK knows this and is working on it. we’ll see what develops, but they played a good game in Seattle. nothing to be ashamed of.

    Well from the game I saw, I felt Houston played well but some areas of the pitch need to be addressed. Watson is not a playmaker. I felt he made to many bad passes. His energy level is good, reminds me of Danny Cruz, but his passing and pressure on goal leaves a lot to be desired. I like Kandji but I’m not sure how his playing ability will fit in with the team. I really like Camargo but even with his fitness being low, it’s obvious he’s lost a step or two from the accident. I wonder if his confidence is low or if he’s just tired from staying up all night from his new born? Either way, 3 games on the road is tough for anyone and there’s still 4 more to go. Other than what I’ve mentioned I feel Houston played well and know they will do well this season. Go Dynamo!

    Not much else to add to this other than, ‘Wow, we’re really having a hard time in the opponent’s third, aren’t we ? REALLY need to work on finishing, guys.’.
