Sounders FC vs. Colorado Rapids, pregame and lineups

colorado home 2011.JPGIn case you hadn’t heard, this afternoon’s game will indeed be played on grass. Earlier today the Vancouver-Real Salt Lake game was postponed when the temporary grass surface at Empire Field was deemed unplayable due to rain.

No indications of that here. The rain has stopped and there were tarps on the field earlier.

The games continue to come fast and often for Sounders FC as this marks the third game this week. We’ll see how two old friends Tyrone Marshall and Sanna Nyassi factor into this one. Lineups should be out around 12:15 p.m. or so.

Sounders FC starting lineup: GK Kasey Keller, D James Riley, D Patrick Ianni, D Jeff Parke, D Tyson Wahl, M Osvaldo Alonso, M Erik Friberg, M Alvaro Fernandez, M Mauro Rosales, F Fredy Montero, F Roger Levesque

Sounders FC bench: GK Terry Boss, D Zach Scott, M Brad Evans, M Lamar Neagle, F/M Pat Noonan, F Mike Fucito, F Nate Jaqua

Colorado Rapids starting lineup: GK Matt Pickens, D Kosuke Kimura, D Marvell Wynne, D Tyrone Marshall, D Drew Moor, M Jamie Smith, M Sanna Nyassi, M Pablo Mastroeni, M Jeff Larentowicz, M Wells Thompson, F Omar Cummings, F Conor Casey

Colorado bench: GK Steward Ceus, F Andre Akpan, F Caleb Folan, M Joseph Nane, M Ross LaBauex, M Sanna Nyassi, D Scott Palguta

UPDATE 12:50 p.m. — Smith is a scratch for Colorado with a tight hamstring and Nyassi replaces him in the starting lineup.
