One of the most dynamic players to sign with Major League Soccer in recent years arrived in 2012 with three names not always easy to remember: Oscar Boniek Garcia.

Two years later the man Houston Dynamo fans simply call Boniek is impossible to forget.

The latest edition of the Emmy-nominated MLS Insider series examines the Dynamo playmaker’s rapid rise in his native Honduras and his aspirations this summer as Los Catrachos return to the world’s biggest stage in Brazil for the World Cup.

Also featured are Boniek’s Honduras teammates and fellow MLSers Jerry Bengtson (New England), Hendry Thomas (FC Dallas), Victor Bernardez (San Jose), Marvin Chavez (Chivas USA).
