Houston Dynamo Homegrown midfielder Christian Lucatero and the MLS Homegrown team face off against the Mexico U-20s tonight at 8 p.m. CT at Avaya Stadium in the Chipotle MLS Homegrown Game, part of MLS All-Star festivities. The match can be watched live on MLSsoccer.com and Univision Deportes Network.


Lucatero, currently on loan with the Rio Grande Valley FC Toros, was added to the roster by Homegrown head coach Landon Donovan as an injury replacement for Seattle Sounders FC midfielder Aaron Kovar.


The Chipotle MLS Homegrown Game was founded in 2014 as a partnership between MLS and Chipotle Mexican Grill, with the intent of featuring the best Homegrown Players throughout the league. The first two editions have both been draws, a 1-1 result last year against the Club América U-20s (Club América won 5-4 on penalties), and a 0-0 draw against the Portland Timbers U-23s in 2014. Former Dynamo Homegrown and current RGV FC midfielder Memo Rodriguez started the first half of last year's match and provided the assist on the lone goal.
