FT – Houston Dynamo 0-1 Villa – First-half headed goal from Joe Bennett earned the win – our second in a very successful two-game tour of Texas. It’s created by Andi Weimann, who whipped a wonderful right-side cross into the box on 41 minutes – and it’s finished expertly by the left-back.

HT – Houston Dynamo 0-1 Villa: Paul Lambert’s men lead at the break after a superb headed goal from Joe Bennett on 41 minutes. Andreas Weimann whipped in a wonderful cross from the right channel and Bennett was at the back post to power home. It’s been fairly quiet other than that. Fabian Delph had the only other chance of note for Villa as he pullled a shot wide on 27 minutes. The midfield ace was replaced on 30 minutes by Kieran Richardson.
