Sounders FC vs. Philadelphia Union, pregame and lineups

ppl1.JPGCHESTER, Pa.–I got off to a little bit of a late start here at PPL Park, but let’s get to it. The rain is pouring. The wind is blowing. It’s about as close to monsoon-like conditions as you can get. I feel like I’m out at sea here.

Here are the lineups. I’ll post pictures from around the park a bit later after the jump…

Sounders FC starting lineup: GK Kasey Keller, D James Riley, D Jeff Parke, D Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, D Leo Gonzalez, M Erik Friberg, M Osvaldo Alonso, M Brad Evans Evans, M Steve Zakuani, F Mauro Rosales, F O’Brian White
