MLS Cup Final 2011, Los Angeles Galaxy Vs. Houston Dynamo Live: Game Underway

We're off and running at the Home Depot Center where the Los Angeles Galaxy are hosting the Houston Dynamo for the right to the 2011 MLS Cup. So far the match has been a little bit messy - we're seeing lots of fouls in the middle third as both teams refuse to let the midfield break on the transition, but so far neither side (and remember, Houston set piece specialist Brad Davis is out injured) has taken advantage of the chance to sling long passes towards their opponents' box.

It's Houston who have the games first chance after Galaxy center half Omar Gonzalez handles just outside the box. The free kick is directed towards the far post and the ball ends up pinging around Josh Saunders' area for a few seconds before the hosts can hack clear. The Dynamo should probably have done better there. Anyway, it's still 0-0, but it's very early days.
