HOUSTON -- The Houston Dynamo announced Wednesday that it acquired Honduras international Alexander Lopez via a transfer from Olimpia. Lopez was a standout at the recently completed CONCACAF Gold Cup, where he played in five games.
Both Houston and Olimpia are participating in the 2013-14 CONCACAF Champions League.
“We’ve seen him up close, including last year in Champions League and this year in the Gold Cup,” said Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear. “He is very versatile and a good fit for our team.
“He is a young international with a bright future and I thought he was good at the Gold Cup.”
Lopez also appeared in three games at both the 2012 Olympic Games and the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup.
The 21-year-old scored 18 goals in 51 career Honduran league games with the Lions.
