Highlights from Monday’s game and links

Here are some video highlights of Monday’s training game from MLSsoccer.com, as Seattle and Vancouver played to a physical 1-1 tie. The goals by Camilo and Servando Carrasco are included, as is Jason Banton‘s red card. Take a look.

And some other links:

— Our good friend Jose Romero was an active one yesterday. He wrote a profile on Mauro Rosales for us and also a Sebastien Le Toux story for the league website.

— Sounders FC draft pick Abdul Aman, a Seattle native that played last year at UW, is apparently going to try his hand in Europe.

— Elsewhere around the league, veteran midfielder Marcelo Saragosa has signed with D.C. United, Edson Buddle talks about his European adventure and Portland’s Jose Adolfo Valencia had successful surgery. A pair has joined Philadelphia Union camp, Danny Mwanga and Keon Daniel, and a pair has left, Thomas Brandt and Brandon Zimmerman (a Pasco native).

What’s going on with Montreal defender Nelson Rivas?

— Here’s the latest edition of ExtraTime Radio.

The Wall Street Journal has a fascinating story on soccer players and third-party owners. Highly recommend this one. Also, here’s an update on Diego Maradona, who’s coaching in the United Arab Emirates, from SI.com.

— Here’s a pretty cool goal and a pretty cool assist.

— Lastly, here’s a poll that our paper has run online regarding an issue that could affect the whole Seattle sports scene.

If an arena is built in Seattle, what team would you be most excited about?
