Game Thread: Dynamo at Vancouver Whitecaps, 2012 MLS Match 12

Gamethread_vancouver_medium


Today's match for the Dynamo is all about adjustment and survival. Jermaine Taylor, Geoff Cameron, Je-Vaughn Watson and Andre Hainault are all away on international duty. Will Bruin (concussion), Alex Dixon (concussion), Kofi Sarkodie (foot sprain) are all our injured. So needless to say, the lineup could look a bit different today.
