CHERRIES midfielder Emerson Hyndman played 64 minutes for loan club Atlanta United during their 5-0 MLS victory over Houston.

Frank de Boer’s side cruised to success in the Eastern Conference encounter, thanks to a double from Josef Martínez.

Julian Gressel, Brandon Vázquez and Darlington Nagbe were also on target at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Hyndman will feature for the MLS champions for the remainder of their season – Atlanta will then have the option to buy him.
