FORGOTTEN Zimbabwe striker Joseph Ngwenya scored a brace to help his US Major League side Houston Dynamo to a 2-1 win over Mexican club Pachuca in a North American Super League Group A mach played on Thursday.

The forward opened the scoring for Dynamo in the 19th minute after gaining possession of a loose ball and striking first-time from about 18 yards out to beat the Pachuca goalkeeper.

The Mexicans equalised in the 51st minute but Ngwenya was on hand to ensure the maximum points for Houston five minutes before time.

A well-place free kick found the striker at the near post in the 85th minute, and his header found the back of the net to give Houston a deserved 2-1 win.

With the victory, Houston moves to first place in Group A with three points.

The tournament features the top eight teams from the US and Mexico with the winners collecting one of the biggest purses in football in the region.

The other participants from the US are Chicago Fire, Chivas USA and New England Revolution while Mexico is represented by four clubs - Monarcas Morelia, Pachuca, Puebla F.C. and Pumas UNAM.
