The Dynamo announced today they have brought in Colombian midfielder Daniel Cruz on trial...not to be confused with American Danny Cruz. Cruz 2.0 joins training starting Thursday. [Houston Dynamo]
30-year-old Cruz is a native of Cali, Colombia, who has played in the Benelux countries since he was a teenager. He joined Dutch power Ajax at the age of 17 and made several appearances for the first team in the 2000-01 Eredivisie season. Cruz has spent the majority of his career in Belgium, moving to Germinal Beerschot on loan in 2002 and permanently in 2003. He has since set a Belgian league record for appearances by a foreign-born player, surpassing the 250-game mark, and become a naturalized Belgian citizen.
