MONTREAL (AP) — Matteo Mancosu scored in his first Major League Soccer start to help the Montreal Impact beat the Houston Dynamo 1-0 on Saturday night.

Starting at striker in place of suspended scoring star Didier Drogba, Mancosu took down a long pass over the top from Italian compatriot Marco Donadel and slid a low shot inside the left post in the 77th minute.

Drogba missed the game after receiving a red card last week in a 1-1 tie at D.C. United.

Mancuso has two goals and an assist in first games since signing with the Impact on July. Montreal (8-5-9) is 4-1-5 in its last 10 games.

Houston (4-10-8) is winless in five games and has scored only one goal in that span.
