Despite the notoriously fickle nature of Jurgen Klinsmann, it should come as a surprise to nobody that Portland Timbers midfielder Darlington Nagbe was called up to the United States Men's National Team yesterday to be a part of the team's Copa America side.

This year's edition of the Copa America will feature teams from North and South America and will run from June 3rd to June 26th, although the US have already started their pre-tournament camp and friendlies.

After failing to score a goal in more than a month, and failing to win a match in almost two months, the Houston Dynamo were in desperate need of a result to turn around a slump that was threatening to send their season into a tailspin.

Sparked by the return of Oscar Boniek Garcia, and the insertion of Omar Cummings into the starting lineup, the Dynamo attack showed signs of life on Saturday that hadn't been seen in some time, and while there was no deluge of goals for Houston, Ricardo Clark's game-winning header felt like one.
