Rosales in and Parke out for Saturday, ticket sales top 61,000

Seattle Sounders FC Logo.jpgHere are a few notes for your Friday afternoon:

— Sounders FC tweeted an update this morning that more than 61,000 tickets have been sold for Saturday, meaning the regular-season home finale will be one of the top five attended stand-alone games in MLS history. We’re expected to get another update later in the day.

— Coach Sigi Schmid said midfielder Mauro Rosales (MCL sprain) will be in the 18-man gameday lineup against San Jose. Defender Jeff Parke will be out, however, as he continues to recover from the concussion. Parke got through all of training Friday but the heading and there’s no reason to think he won’t be ready to go next week.

Samir Badr, a U.S. youth national goalkeeper, has been training with the team the last few days. The 19-year-old came up through the D.C. United system and played for the FC Porto reserves. Here’s an old story on him and other D.C. product Bill Hamid in The Washington Post.
