Who, if any, Sounders FC player will shine tonight?

Lots of candidates because there should be some guys who play tonight in the U.S. Open Cup match that don’t play regularly or at all. Sebastien Le Toux is a possibility. The MID-FWD led the entire U.S. Open Cup in goals last year with five. He also led the tournament in goals in 2007 with five.

Or will it be GK Chris Eylander, who according to the U.S. Open Cup Web site:

“…was named the USOpenCup.com Player of the Tournament in 2008, conceding only 1 goal in 510 minutes, including a 453-minute shutout streak, a Professional Era U.S. Open Cup record.”

You can go to the site to see some match preview info.

Zach Scott and Taylor Graham, two MLS Sounders who were USL Sounders in the Cup last year, scored goals in last year’s Cup. Graham is expected to play tonight, don’t know about Scott.
