Regarding the new Leagues Cup tournament: .@wclsoccer13 tells me @HoustonDynamo will more than likely use @RGVFC players for the team's july 24 match vs. @ClubAmerica. HOU will be in the midst of playing 15 games in 40 days at that time. @MLS, playoffs clearly take priority.— Lester Gretsch (@LesterDeportes) May 29, 2019
