Houston Dynamo have announced the signing of goalkeeper Erich Marscheider.

The 19-year old has joined the 2011 MLS runners-up after impressing during pre-season training after spending three-and-a-half years with Colorado Rush Soccer Club and the Dynamo are genuinely excited about securing his services.

"He has a good attitude, he works hard and has good size," Dynamo goalkeeping coach Tim Hanley said.

"Age is also a factor because there is a big upside to a kid who is only 19 years old. Erich is very polished technically, which shows that he has been coached before, and I do not have to do a whole lot to change how he plays. Mostly important, he has a good attitude, which is something I value highly in my goalkeepers."
