A perfect day for Sounders FC practice

What a day for practice. Sun was out, players were in a good mood. The last drill of the day was an 8-on-8 game that coach Sigi Schmid stopped and announced that there would be one minute of extra time added and if no goal was scored, there would be PKs. Kevin Forrest scored the decisive goal moments later, and practice was over.

This team is pretty loose. Jhon Kennedy Hurtado dumped ice down Steve Zakuani’s back, and Zakuani screamed as he fell to the ground while teammates nearby laughed.

Freddie Ljungberg was due back from Sweden later today and will get in an individual workout. He did not arrive in Seattle in time for Thursday morning’s practice after flying home for his grandmother’s funeral.
