Hector Herrera Houston Dynamo: The football club unveils a superstar midfielder on Friday

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – Hello, Hector Herrera!

The Houston Dynamo Football Club’s newest star and captain of the Mexico national soccer team arrived in Houston on Wednesday and now, two days later, the midfielder will make his official debut in the city.

Herrera, 32, will be unveiled at a 1pm press conference and will be joined by owner Ted Segal, general manager Pat Onstad and head coach Paulo Nagamura.

ABC13 will be streaming this press conference live in the video player above.

Herrera has enjoyed immense success in European football, joining Houston from Atletico Madrid. He has signed a contract until 2024 with an option for 2025.

He also won an Olympic gold medal in 2012.

But when will fans finally be able to see him on the pitch at PNC Stadium? He will be eligible to play in the Texas Derby on July 9th when Frisco comes to town.

About a week before that, El Zorro, as he is also known, will be presented to the audience in a half-time presentation on July 3rd.

Zorro, Spanish for fox, is also a nod to Herrera’s style of play, the club said, as foxes are known for being cunning, creative and intelligent, and particularly good at striking out of nowhere to surprise their opponents.

Fox also seems appropriate as this is the Dynamo’s mascot. Eagle-eyed fans will notice the fox emoji sprinkled across Herrera’s social media posts.

Another name you will hear when describing Herrera is “HH” as it is known to most football fans.

Houston Dynamo FC is throwing a party at the Post Houston downtown Friday at 8 p.m. Herrera is expected to address the crowd at 9 p.m

If you plan to go, be sure to respond.

Herrera, signed to Dynamo in March.

The Houston football club’s inaugural year was 2006 after the franchise moved after they were the San Jose Earthquakes.

The team found instant success, becoming MLS Cup champions in 2006 and 2007.

But they have endured a drought and have not qualified for the playoffs since 2017. Fans ABC13 spoke to earlier in the week say the move to acquire Herrera shows is intended to seriously change that.

“This is a turning point for this organization,” said Billy Mears of DynamoTheory.com. “It’s a testament to the intentions of the front office.”
