Sounders FC vs. Portland Timbers, pregame and lineups

portland home.JPGWhat more is there to say?

After all the hype and anticipation it’s up to the players to decide a winner. The crowd will be phenomenal I’m sure, but which side will perform best on the night?

The early word I’ve received is that Steve Zakuani and O’Brian White are not at Qwest Field today. Mauro Rosales will be a game-time decision, so we’ll see in about an hour if he’s ready to go. As always, I’ll post lineups below when they become available.

Sounders FC starting lineup: GK Kasey Keller, D James Riley, D Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, D Patrick Ianni, D Tyson Wahl, M Osvaldo Alonso, M Servando Carrasco, M Brad Evans, M Alvaro Fernandez, F Fredy Montero, F Nate Jaqua

Portland starting lineup: GK Troy Perkins, D Jeremy Hall, D Eric Brunner, D Mamadou “Futty” Danso, D Rodney Wallace, M Darlington Nagbe, M Jack Jewsbury, M Diego Chara, M Kalif Alhassan, F Kenny Cooper, F Jorge Perlaza

Sounders FC reserves: GK Terry Boss, M/F Mike Fucito, D Leo Gonzalez, M/F Roger Levesque, M/F Lamar Neagle, D Jeff Parke, D Zach Scott

Portland reserves: GK Jake Gleeson, D David Horst, M James Marcelin, M Adam Moffat, M/F Ryan Pore, D Steve Purdy, M/F Sal Zizzo

I was told Sounders FC midfielder Erik Friberg left Friday’s practice early with an undisclosed injury. He had played all 10 games, nine as a starter. I’d heard it was an ankle. Also looks like Rosales wasn’t able to go.
