MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] The South Texas Shootout between Houston Dynamo and FC Dallas drew a near sellout crowd of 5,432 at Whataburger Field in Corpus Christi, but the match turned ugly in the first when FC Dallas defender Jair Benitez spat at Houston's Geoff Cameron. Following Houston's 4-0 win, Dynamo players accused the Colombian of being one of the dirtiest players in MLS. Benitez's response?

“No chance, no chance,” Cameron told the Houston Chronicle when informed of Benitez’s claim. “If he says I spit in his face, he’s an idiot.”

Brian Ching and Cameron confronted Benitez after the Dynamo's third goal scored by Brad Davis on a free kick in the 40th minute.

“I think he’s an unprofessional player,” Cameron, who scored the second Houston goal, said of Benitez. “It’s just one of those things that he came up to me and it took me every ounce of my energy not to punch him in the face, hit him or retaliate."

Ching's view: “I think he’s a dirty player. We don’t need that type of player in this league. He’s a good player. But you definitely don’t need that extra antic on the field. There’s no room for it.”
