- Joseph Ngwenya
Something that too far too long finally came to an end yesterday. The Houston Dynamo were finally able to re-sign striker Joseph Ngwenya after FIFA issued a new international transfer certificate.
The five-week ordeal happened because Ngwenya’s last club, Turkish side Antalyaspor, denied Houston’s request for the ITC. FIFA ruled in the Dynamo’s favor and now the club has a little more depth up top today. The club and Ngwenya already agreed on a deal after a week-long trial but due to the ITC hold-up they weren’t able to do anything it until now.
Ngwenya will be available to the club this weekend against D.C. United. More than likely he’ll make his 2010 debut in that game as the club won’t have to wait to get him back into game shape since he has been training with the club for over a month.
Its good to hear that FIFA ruled in favor of the Dynamo’s appeal here. Ngwenya will definitely be a boost to an offense that has been a bit inconsistent this season. With the loss of Geoff Cameron and the ongoing injuries this year its no secret that the Dynamo needed some help up top. Ngwenya has been that guy for them in the past so there should be little doubt that he can do it again this season.
Dynamo fans are you happy to finally hear that Ngwenya can play?
