The Seattle Sound and a Scottish Highland band were each rehearsing at midfield in warm-ups. I saw a lot of Celtic support coming into the stadium, so we should have a fun day of soccer with a great atmosphere.
This is the Sounders’ second of three international friendlies this year, with the third yet to be announced. It’s also the team’s seventh game in 22 days (if I’m counting correctly).
Expect to see a lot of reserves from both sides, though recently the label of “reserves” has changed for Seattle, so I’m quite sure what to expect. I’ll post lineups here when they become available.
