The Fire announced last night that they will be taking on fellow MLS side the Houston Dynamo in their second-to-last friendly of the preseason. The match will kick off this Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Carl Lewis Track and Field Complex in Houston. The Fire had originally planned to travel to New Orleans for their final regular season tune-up, but instead decided to head to Texas for the final stop of their preseason tour. The club will head to Houston tomorrow and depart for Chicago on Friday -- the day after the match.
It's good to see the Fire go up against another MLS team in the run-up to the regular season. Both teams will likely field strong lineups, and the Dynamo will provide a strong test for the Fire.
As has been the case with all of the Fire's preseason friendlies, the club will be providing live updates about the match via their twitter account.
