Highlights of the game that captured the world, Sounders FC

You should have seen the scene at Mad Pizza yesterday afternoon, when Barcelona-Arsenal was gracing the televisions at the Starfire eatery. Crowded to say the least. Several Sounders FC players were watching elsewhere in the complex — including Gunners academy product Steve Zakuani, I’m sure.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t post the highlights of the match that had Sounders FC camp — and the rest of the world — enthralled to the final minute. There’s nothing like world-class soccer at it’s best.

Here are the UEFA Champions League scores from the last couple days in the round of 16:

Arsenal 2-1 Barcelona

AS Roma 2-3 Shakhtar Donetsk

AC Milan 0-1 Tottenham

Valencia 1-1 Schalke 04

Some other quick links:

— The Portland Timbers continue to make moves, most recently acquiring Sal Zizzo from Chivas USA for allocation money.

— Here’s an update on San Jose’s new stadium construction. A demolition ceremony at the proposed site is set for March 3.

— Lastly, Korrio.com (which I profiled briefly here with director of business development Danny Jackson, an ex-USL Sounder) announced a partnership with Washington Youth Soccer the other day.
