Practice Report: May 7
Chivas USA practices in front of the 2010 Sueño MLS finalists
May 7, 2010
In preparation for Saturday's match against the Houston Dynamo, Chivas USA trained at 11am today. Here are a few notes from the session:
- Crisp Passes: The team worked through extensive passing drills, a skill that they demonstrated in spades during Wednesday night's 4-0 victory over the New England Revolution.
- Gavin's Strike: Head Coach Martín Vázquez discussed the performance of rookie Blair Gavin at New England on Wednesday when he scored on a left-footed strike, "You have to give him credit for that because he had it in mind. He had the opportunity, he executed, and he executed well."
- Dreaming: Attending practice were the finalists from the 2010 Sueño MLS competition, there to watch the original Sueño, Jorge Flores. Following training Flores took a picture with the young players and talked to them about is experience, giving a few encouraging words.
- Final words: "We are a different team than the last time that we played against Houston. The results say it... and now we need to show it." - Vázquez on playing the Dynamo, the only team to beat Chivas USA in the past four games.
