Houston Dynamo vs DC United

This event has already occurred.

Be there as the newest members of the Houston Dynamo, Beasley and Garrido, make their debuts against D.C. United on Sunday, August 3!

With transfer paperwork complete, both DaMarcus Beasley and new Honduran midfielder Luis Garrido are available, acting as a timely adrenalin shot to the Dynamo. Beasley’s most recent competitive match was the Americans’ defeat by Belgium in the World Cup round of 16 on July 1. He is focusing on the short-term as he prepares to open a new chapter in his career and make his first MLS appearance since the summer of 2004, when he left the Chicago Fire for Dutch side PSV Eindhoven and began a long and successful European adventure.

“I’m hungry, period. I’m hungry for Sunday, I’m not even talking about the playoffs. I’m talking about Sunday, getting my feet wet back in MLS, playing with these guys—I’m excited,” he told reporters.

“I’m looking at Sunday as a very important game in front of our fans and we’re here to get three points and hopefully climb up the table … I’ve been off for three weeks but I don’t really get unfit, I’m a pretty fit guy. The coach makes the decision. If he sees I need another week of training, I need another week of training. If he sees that I’m fit to play, I’m fit to play. It just depends on how he sees it.”

Beasley is 32 and has played for six clubs over 14 years, as well as accumulating 120 international caps and becoming the only American to appear in four World Cups. But he said that he still gets a thrill when he pulls on a new jersey and steps on to a field for the first time.

“I might get a little butterflies but once I touch the ball one time it goes away. It’s always fun to play a debut game for me, personally. You’re in front of new fans, the team, you want to make a good impression, obviously,” he said.
