Dynamo MF Héctor Herrera English transcript: (on facing LAFC) “Nothing really changes, meaning we are very familiar with their squad. I said this a few months ago that for me they were probably the strongest team we’ve faced. They are complete, have really great players and match up really well by position. I still believe that. They have high quality players with a lot of experience, and it is going to be a hard game. I don’t think we need to change our identity based on LAFC. What we have in our locker room has brought us here to a conference final. Obviously, there will be some changes and adjustments in the game based on the situation or how it plays out, but we need to be who we are regardless of if we’re at Shell Energy Stadium or in Los Angeles.”
(on midfield teammate Artur) “I believe that Artur is a big part of my success and what I’ve been able to accomplish this year, and I’ve told him that. We have a great relationship, strong communication both on and off the field and he gives me the freedom to play because of how he plays his game. I’ve told him that he is the foundation of the team, a lung of sorts because he levels us out. I believe that he is underrated and should be praised a little more by everybody, including the league. He is, in my opinion, one of the top five center midfielders in MLS. I’m not saying that just because he’s my friend, but because I believe he is and know how important he is to us.”
(on winning in Houston) “With the other teams I’ve been on, we were always one of the top contenders and there has always been this expectation to win. It's been different here in Houston. At the beginning of the year, we were serious candidates to be near the bottom of the league. No one ever expected us to even make the playoffs. We knew we had a big challenge ahead of us and that it was going to be hard. The entire team, staff and organization knew that and took on the challenge. I believe we have done a great job, collectively, of getting us to this point. Personally, I feel that the responsibility to win and how it feels to win here feels sweeter compared to in the past with other teams. I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed winning a title like I did winning one here earlier this year with the Open Cup. Maybe it's my role on the team or how hard it was but it was an incredible feeling.”

This week, Houston Dynamo Head Coach Ben Olsen said "the bigger the game is, this team has the players that can step up in those big moments. We’ll need these guys to be at their best if we're going to get by LAFC. This recruitment was by design." Hear more from him online at CW39.com. Video courtesy of Houston Dynamo.
Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger has died, his consulting firm says. He was 100. Kissinger dominated foreign policy as the United States extricated itself from Vietnam and broke down barriers with China. He exerted uncommon influence on global affairs under Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, earning both harsh criticism and the Nobel Peace Prize. The German-born diplomat got the U.S. out of Vietnam after bloody, costly years of delay and into China in a sudden burst of secret diplomacy. Decades later, his name still provoked impassioned debate over foreign policy actions long past. He stands among the 20th century’s commanding figures in U.S. foreign policy.
