Here’s the latest player updates from Sounders FC:
Rookie defender Jared Karkas will be with the team for training this Wednesday and Thursday, as will forward Jeff Clark. Clark kept himself in the hunt for a roster spot with a good week of games last week. Defender-midfielder Ryan Caugherty, another California addition to the roster, is also coming to Seattle with the team.
Rookie forward Michael Fucito, Seattle’s fourth-round SuperDraft choice from Harvard, is expected to join the team Friday before it heads to Portland for an exhibition game. Fucito has been dealing with a hamstring injury and has yet to take the field in any capacity for Seattle (thanks to Sounder at Heart, which first made contact with Fucito).
F-M Emerald George has been released.
You might have already seen this, but now on the MLS Web site –– if you scroll down a bit — is video of Sounders FC’s first goal in competition. It’s Fredy Montero with the score on the PK after Steve Zakuani draws the foul in the box. Also there are photos of the Seattle-San Jose game in San Luis Obispo.
