MLS Eastern Conference Final: Match Day Commentary

Sporting Kansas City Logo  Houston Dynamo Logo

Sporting Kansas City and the Houston Dynamo will be playing for the first place in the 2011 MLS Cup Final today as they square off at LiveStrong Sporting Park in the Eastern Conference Final (5:30pm, Fox Soccer Channel).

Sporting KC comes in as the No. 1 seed and will look to continue their stellar home form against a tough Houston side that has rattled off an eight-match unbeaten streak since dropping a 3-0 decision in their last visit to face Sporting KC.

On one side you have a Sporting KC side with a loaded attack and solid defense. On the other, you have a Houston squad with a stingy defense and an offense that can burn opponents on set pieces.

Here is my Fox Soccer preview on today's East Final, which details the match-ups to watch and the keys to victory for both teams.

SBI will be providing live commentary on today's match so please feel free to share your thoughts, opinions and some play-by-play in the comments section below.

Enjoy the action (Commentary is after the jump):

    Camargo with a nice little scoop thru-ball to Ching who really should have done better — should’ve taken a shot on the first bounce.

  4. Brent McD says:

    Aarrrgghh! Davis puts Carr through on the goalie, but he also takes an extra touch — which makes for an easy save.

  5. Brent McD says:

    YESSSSS!!! Hainault with the tap-in. Dangerous set piece even without Davis

  6. Brent McD says:
