Minnesota United returns to the Lone Star State just days after falling to FC Dallas to face a Houston Dynamo squad emboldened by its 5-2 thrashing of early Western Conference frontrunners Sporting Kansas City. Against Dallas, the Loons came out flat and paid the price, conceding back-to-back goals in the 11th and 12th minutes. An overhaul of the front four for the second half brought life into the squad and a Hassani Dotson-brand Banger™ in the 55th minute got them back into the game, but in 106° heat on the road, the team was not able to claw their way back. The Dynamo and erstwhile Loons Darwin Quintero and Christian Ramirez will no doubt smell blood in the water after MNUFC dropped its last two in a row, while Minnesota’s ranks could be bolstered by the addition of its new Designated Player, attacking midfielder Emanuel Reynoso.
