Philadelphia Union Vs. Houston Dynamo Live, MLS Cup 2011: Andre Hainault Puts Dynamo In Front After 5 Minutes

A packed house in full voice at PPL Park? The Houston Dynamo don't care. The intimidating atmosphere is no bother for them. They'll walk in there and get a goal after just five minutes. Brad Davis whipped another great dead ball in (does he ever hit a dead ball that's not great) and Andre Hainault came flying in to nod the ball home. Uh oh. The Philadelphia Union are in trouble. That home field advantage is missing after five minutes because the Dynamo lead, 1-0.

The free kick came from the right and was a result of Gabriel Farfan's boot to the head of Danny Cruz. It should have been a red card, but Jair Marrufo only showed him yellow. it looked unfair to the Dynamo and it still is, but it did result in the goal at least and now they have themselves an early lead on the road in this two-legged affair.
