The Mexican midfielder has been a rock in the Dynamo's midfield, breaking up play and distributing the ball effectively.

The Dynamo's attack has also been more effective under Olsen. The team has scored four goals in its two games under his leadership. Forward Sebastian Ferreira has been the Dynamo's most dangerous player. The Paraguayan forward has scored two goals and provided two assists in the team's two wins.
