Raul Ruidiaz returned to Sounders training Tuesday. The striker missed the team’s past two matches because of an ankle injury.
Will Bruin and Cristian Roldan scored two minutes apart midway through the second half and the Seattle Sounders stayed unbeaten with a 3-2 victory over Toronto FC. Seattle knocked Toronto from the ranks of the unbeatens in the only regular-season matchup between the MLS Cup finalists from 2016 and 2017.
One of the oft-forgotten elements to what’s been a run of excellence for the Sounders going on three-plus years is how they’ve managed it without a one-season reboot. The same can’t be said for their Saturday afternoon opponent, Toronto FC, a franchise that began its own stretch of excellence around the same time back in 2016.
The Denver area is under a blizzard warning from the National Weather Service until noon on Thursday. The game has been rescheduled for Sept. 7.
Nicolas Lodeiro scored in the 18th minute, and the Seattle Sounders extended their club-record start with a 1-0 victory over Real Salt Lake.
A video replay decision in extra time cost the Vancouver Whitecaps a chance for penalty kick in a 0-0 tie with the Seattle Sounders. At first, referee Robert Sibiga ruled a yellow card against Kim Kee-hee, which would have set up a penalty kick. The call was reversed after a video replay review.
Victor Rodriguez and Jordan Morris each had first-half goals and Seattle scored the opening three goals before holding off the Chicago Fire 4-2, the Sounders’ third straight victory to open the season.
Kelvin Leerdam and Raul Ruidiaz scored in the first eight minutes in the Seattle Sounders’ 2-0 victory over the Colorado Rapids on Saturday night.
Not only do they have the talent to have the best record in the MLS, the Sounders have the talent to have their best record ever.
The debut of the newest MLS franchise was overshadowed by Morris’ return after missing the entire 2018 season due to a torn ACL in his right knee suffered while playing in the CONCACAF Champions League
Twelve months after suffering a torn ACL in his right knee, nearly 18 months since he last played a full 90 minutes for either club or country, Jordan Morris has snapped out of his funk
Nouhou arrived in Sounders camp Tuesday after an offseason in Cameroon shedding 6 pounds and slimming his notably bulky physique to add speed to his game. He hopes to be more decisive on offense in a battle with Brad Smith for the team’s starting left back job.
Osvaldo Alonso wasn’t on the roster for the first time in franchise history as the Seattle Sounders opened preseason camp. Clint Dempsey wasn’t there either. The process of saying farewell to a number of key figures from the first decade of Seattle’s existence has been ongoing for several seasons. But those two notable absences on the first day of camp Tuesday seemed to emphasize the change.
