Ghanaian international striker Dominic Oduro has admitted his delight after scoring against his former club, Houston Dynamo in the American top-flight on Sunday morning.
The 28-year-old returned to the BBVA Compass Stadium to score a first-half added-time strike to deny Houston Dynamo, a club he spent three seasons, between 2009 and 2011 and scoring 6 times.
Oduro was able to tie it in first half stoppage after Dynamo had taken a 2-1 lead by chesting a Luke Moore pass into the right net from the centre goalkeeper’s box after Moore was able to beat A.J. Cochran down the left endline.
“I’d rather get three points than a goal, but we showed we are a strong team right now,” said Oduro. “We fought hard. In this heat, to get a point on a road — any time you get a point on the road is good. We showed we had character today. That’s what the coaching staff has been trying to tell us, and that’s what we are trying to learn.”
The former Columbus Crew attacker expressed his delight at scoring against his former club.
“It’s always good to score against my former team, but that’s not the idea of it,” said Oduro said. “It kind of helps. It boosted our spirits. I want to score against any team no matter what. Just sometimes, scoring against a former team is a bit bittersweet.”
