What do you think of those two additions dK Di Vaio is a smart player and he looked very good against Kansas City (on July 4). His movement off the ball is good and his touch is good. He makes smart runs and when he is on the ball I think he has good vision. We all know about Nesta and his reputation and what he has done in his career. He was one of the best defenders in the world and I m sure he is going to make their defense better. MP Montreal midfielder Felipe earned two assists against the Dynamo on June 23 and also received a yellow card for diving. What do you think of Felipe dK He makes a lot of things happen for Montreal. He makes good runs and finds little gaps on the field. It s important to have someone around him to make sure when he receives the ball that he doesn t have time and space to look forward and create problems for you. Xs&Os with dominic kinnear Q U ESTI O NS BY MATT PED ER S E N Matt Pedersen Impact midfielder Patrice Bernier brings a lot of experience to the expansion club with nine years in Norway Denmark and Germany before returning to Montreal for this season. What do you think of Bernier doMinic Kinnear He s a pretty good player he s also played for Canada (46 caps) and is a smart player. He is cool on the ball and when you give him time he can pick the right pass as a lot of players do in this league. It s important to try and limit his touches on the ball and hopefully that limits his impact on the game. MP For an expansion team the Impact have a good mix of veterans with MLS and European experience. Does their experience level surprise you for an expansion club dK I think expansion team is just a label now. With teams being able to pick players from other teams and the expansion draft and allocation money you don t see an expansion team out there that is very young anymore. They are an MLS team and their players have won championships have played in the playoffs and have been around. Montreal is an experienced team. MP Since the Dynamo faced Montreal on June 23 the Impact has added Italian striker Marco Di Vaio (142 goals in 342 games in Serie A) and legendary Italian defender Alessandro Nesta (78 caps for STUDENT ATHLETE Of THE GAME GUILLERMO VIGIL SOCCER 6-0 fRESH.

Barcelona Sport (other than soccer) surfing Color green Actor Al Pacino CanaDIan Cowboy ANDRe HAINAuLT FOReGOeS OPPORTuNITy TO PLAy FOR HOMeTOWN TeAM by MATT PEDERSEN Andr Hainault grew up in the suburbs of Montreal. He played hockey in the winter and baseball in the summer with his three brothers but the boys shared an even greater passion for soccer. Hainault s talents on the pitch took him to Europe and eventually back to North America where he became a key man in the Dynamo defense earning the Dynamo Defender of the Year award in 2011. The Montreal Impact sought Hainault in a trade this winter offering a chance for the native son to return to his hometown for the club s first season in Major League Soccer. But Hainault liked what he had in Houston enough to decline a ticket home and endear himself to Dynamo fans for his loyalty. Hainault debuted with the Impact in 2004 when the club was in the USL First Division. After making just three appearances with the club he went to England for a trial and a quest for opportunities in Europe. I was over in England with a team on trial and things weren t working out he said. Then all of the sudden a contact I knew said there is a team in the Czech Republic and they would be willing to bring you over and have a look. The team was FK SIAD Most a club in the town of Most an hour s drive northwest from Prague. My goal was always to try and get over to Europe and it worked out great said Hainault. I had three great years over there. His stint in the Czech Republic included a loan spell with Czech powerhouse Sparta Prague the largest and most successful club in the country with an alumni list that includes Petr Cech Jan Koller Pavel Nedved and Tomas Rosicky. It was so interesting for me Hainault recalls. I tried to soak up as much of the history and stories of old players who played there and really everybody (important) came through there. I loved that time and that was probably the coolest part playing in the stadium (Generali Arena) where they ve had some big games. Hainault s contract expired in 2008 and he looked to return to North America to play in Major League Soccer. Hainault has been a regular with the Canadian men s national team since 2006 (27 caps) and learned of the Canadian contingent in Houston through Canadian national team goalkeeper Pat Onstad. I had participated in camps with Pat Onstad before and knew that he was in Houston Hainault recollects. He always raved about it and (Canadians) Dwayne De Rosario and Adrian Serioux were there so there was always a Canadian thing going on here. I don t know who exactly put in a good word but Houston took my (discovery) rights. I came to Houston and I m lucky I did because it s been great. Hainault has contributed ever since his arrival in 2009 appearing in at least 20 games per season and offering tremendous flexibility to Dominic Kinnear by playing at all three positions across the back line. Last October Hainault faced a predicament when Canadian men s national team head coach Stephen Hart invited Hainault into camp for World Cup qualifying matches against St. Lucia and Puerto Rico. The games conflicted with a vital road game for Houston against the Portland Timbers in the midst of a surge for a playoff spot. Furthermore Hainault was battling injuries at the time and could use the extra rest so he offered to be available for only the St. Lucia game. Hart did not accept Hainault s offer causing some debate in Canadian soccer circles. It was a tough decision but I d do it again if I had to and it worked out said Hainault now nine months later. That was a big game in Portland and one that I really wanted to be a part of and we got a result there and kept it going. Hainault had a major impact on the game in Portland scoring his first goal of the year as the Dynamo left the Rose City with a 2-0 win. Hainault and Hart have repaired any ill feelings dating to the call-up controversy and Hainault has regained a starting spot in Canada s World Cup qualifying quest. The 26-year-old marvels at the impact qualifying for the 2014 World Cup would have on his home country. I don t think the supporters even realize how big it would be for Canada to qualify for the World Cup he said. I think it could really turn things around for soccer in Canada. Last camp when I was with the national team we started thinking if we could qualify it would be unbelievable. We could be heroes. Qualifying for a World Cup is mostly black and white- you win enough games and you qualify for the tournament on merit. Winning a bid to host a World Cup is an entirely different gambit with accusations of bribery and corruption tainting recent bids awarded to Russia and Qatar. Still Canada would like to host the 2026 World Cup and the Canadian Soccer Association announced earlier this month that it intends to bid when the process begins in a few years. It would be just as big as qualifying for a World Cup Hainault stated. You can t imagine what it would do for fans there and the money that would be invested in soccer in Canada. There are already more kids playing soccer than hockey in Canada which speaks volumes. Last November the Montreal Impact selected Dynamo forward Brian Ching with the first pick in the MLS expansion draft. Reports surfaced that the Impact wanted to pry Hainault the Quebec native from Houston and were using Ching as trade leverage. Hainault was offered a chance to return home by Dominic Kinnear but turned it down. Dom was good with me during that time keeping me in the loop and letting me know right away that Montreal was interested Hainault remembers. If I had any desires to go back they d help me move but I was clear with them that I didn t have any desire to go back. We just went to MLS Cup and I was happy here and didn t want to move not for more money not for anything. The six-foot defender had received a vote of confidence weeks before the trade rumors began swirling. At the annual Dynamo awards celebration Hainault was named 2011 Dynamo Defender of the Year. I ll say that was my biggest achievement or individual award that I ve received because it was voted on by the coaching staff he said. I m pretty happy and proud about that. Hainault was a regular in 2011 appearing in 31 games and playing nearly every minute in which he was available for selection. Early on this season however he found himself the odd man out in a talented group of five defenders competing for four spots and was on the bench for consecutive games in May. It was tough but I wasn t blaming anybody but myself Hainault recollects. I didn t really have a great start to the season. I was never bitter toward any of the guys or Dom. I just tried to come out and have a positive attitude because nobody wants a Debbie Downer in the locker room. Hainault returned to the lineup on May 26 for a highly anticipated game with the LA Galaxy a rematch of the 2011 MLS Cup final. Hainault scored the winning goal in the second half of a 2-1 Dynamo win and delivered a glorious celebration capped off by a soaring jump fist pump and primal roar. There were a lot of things going on for me that weekend he said. With the afternoon heat not being in the lineup for the prior games feeling sick leading up to the game and I was just exhausted. But when I got that goal I just felt like I could jump out of the stadium.

Previously the Dynamo had a group of players who were part of the Junior Academy and trained once a week with the Dynamo coaching staff but spent the rest of the week with their local club team. This would be the first opportunity for three new teams to train in Dynamo orange four days a week and play competitive games as a unit on weekends. The number one thing was to get this off the ground Clarkson said. We knew we had some talented players in the system but asking them to leave their current club and train with us four days a week was a huge step. It has not taken long for the Dynamo to see the fruit of their labor as the U-15 team recently finished first in the US Club Soccer Texas Pre-Academy League and will compete in the National Premier League Champions Cup from July 27-31 in Chicago Ill. We knew our U-15s would be good but it s even more remarkable because nine of their players are young enough to play on the U-13s or U-14s Clarkson said. Aside from the nine players who are playing up with the U-15s Clarkson added that there are certain players who are eligible for the U-15s that spent much of the season playing with the U-16s. I give all of the credit to the coaching staff Clarkson said. Cuahtemoc Rios and Garth Welch have done a phenomenal job with the players. The success is also attributed to the parents The game schedule for the Champions Cup is not set but group play will begin July 27-29 at Waukegan Sports Park. At the end of the day that is what the program is about. We are trying to form a pipeline so our kids can move up the ladder and eventually make their way into the Dynamo first team. Last year we brought in 22 new players to make up our U-16 team he said. This year we will only be looking for four or five as the core of our U-15s will move up together to form next year s U-16 team. The Dynamo U-15s finished the season on a nine-game unbeaten streak and clinched first place with a 3-1 win over Lonestar Soccer Club on June 16. The team finished with a 10-2-4 record (34 points) and a 27 goal differential. Houston also went undefeated at home this season. The thing that makes this group so special is their camaraderie Clarkson said. They have some very strong players but they also play hard for each other and it shows in their positive results. Aside from a trip to the NPL Champions Cup Clarkson looks at this year s success as a positive for years to come. who came to every game home and away and gave full support to the team. dYnaMo teaM store store HoUrs game days 3 HoUrs BeFore kickoFF non-game days tUesdaY tHUrsdaY FridaY 11 aM 3 pM player t-shirt 20 aVailaBle in Ching daVis Boswell Cameron hall and Boniek iteM oF tHe GaMe a bicycle kick to the tastebuds. Proud Partner of the Houston Dynamo At participating McDonald s. Limited time offer. 2012 McDonald s. kickin it wiTH TYLER DERIC What is your favorite thing about Houston I love that there is always something to do and it doesn t have to be sports related. you can go to museums or just hang out at the park. There are plenty of ways for someone to have fun. What do you enjoy doing away from the soccer field I really enjoy being outside and staying active. I love playing golf walking around the park or throwing a football with my teammates. If you weren t a professional soccer player what would you be I would probably be a trick-shot billiards player. None of my teammates will play me anymore but I did hustle Andre Hainault once. I let him go up by a few shots but then came back and beat him. What is something people don t know about you I am a very good cook probably the best chef on the team. Last night I made pork tenderloins with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables. Do you ever cook for your apartment mates We all cook our own thing but I always tell them to try my food and it s usually the best food they have ever eaten.
