Sporting Kansas City Vs. Houston Dynamo Live, MLS Cup Playoffs 2011: SKC Could Use Omar Bravo

With Omar Bravo back from an abductor injury, there was question as to whether Peter Vermes would put him in the starting lineup or stick with the three-man front line of Kei Kamara, Teal Bunbury and C.J. Sapong that got them through the conference semifinal. He chose to leave Bravo on the bench and he might be regretting that decision now. With the Houston Dynamo defending deep, as expected, having three speedsters up top isn't doing Sporting Kansas City much good.

They could really use Bravo at this point. Someone who has a little more creativity and skill on the ball to break down the Houston defense. Sporting isn't going to run in behind the Sporting defense so they might want to try something new now. Bravo is that something new. Peter Vermes might want to try him.
