How do you know when a top flight Mexican futbol club is nervous and needing a victory…..they make the game free to the public.
We just found out that the club will be opening the gates to all comers. It should prove to make for an interesting atmosphere.
Enough about them though.
Training has gone well down here. Pachuca has a wonderful stadium and a great playing field. We went through our regular day before a game training session that had a light-hearted atmosphere. As a group we are still trying to hit form which isn’t likely for another two or three months, yet we are optimistic and enjoying our ride in the Concacaf tournament.
I think we clearly come in with an advantage being up two goals, however Pachuca is a very good team and even more importantly at their own home field. The elevation here is definetly going to play a factor in the game.
All things considered this is a great opportunity to advance in a major international competition. It would be a great achievment for us as a team and for MLS as a league. We are proud to represent our city and our fans and are hoping to bring another title to Houston. I know you will all be watching us so enjoy the game.
