We're a team striving for greatness, and the best thing for a team striving for greatness is to go up against greatness and that's what you get," Barnes, who played with Derby County, West Bromwich Albion and Doncaster Rovers, told MLSsoccer.com.
"Just showing we can pull that caliber of opponent shows we're well respected not only as a league but as a team in the Houston Dynamo as well."
