Uganda Cranes’ midfielder Michael Azira was hugely one to credit for Montreal Impact’s first goal of their Major League Soccer match against Houston Dynamo but a late undoing brought loss away from home.

Azira’s well-weighted delivery from one metre close to the right edge of the box set up Saphir Taider who connected for the far post in the 34th minute.

However, Memo Rodriguez leveled matters for Houston with ferocious strike from distance two minutes later.

Things got worse in the second half for Impact as Mauro Manotas found the back of the net in the 86th minute to stretch his league goals run to five matches and lift the Houston Dynamo to a 2-1 victory.
