Sounders FC vs. Whitecaps FC, pregame and lineups

vancouver away 2011.jpgHere we are at a rainy Empire Field for what will be the last game at this temporary venue. The clouds have come in to ruin what has been a beautiful day up here in British Columbia.

The Sounders clinched an MLS playoff berth last night and can secure the Cascadia Cup with a win against the Whitecaps tonight. Early MLS action has favored Seattle as well (Dallas loses, RSL down 4-0 at the half, L.A. level with Columbus 0-0 at the break).

Each team has a defender suspended — Tyson Wahl for SSFC and Alain Rochat for Vancouver — which should affect the hosts more than the visitors. Full lineups should be available around 6:45 p.m. and I’ll update this post accordingly.

Sounders FC starting lineup: GK Kasey Keller, D Zach Scott, D Jeff Parke, D Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, D Leo Gonzalez, M Osvaldo Alonso, M Brad Evans, M Alvaro Fernandez, M Lamar Neagle, F Fredy Montero, F Nate Jaqua
