Eddie Johnson says there are “no hard feelings” toward Oswaldo Sanchez

* * *

Sounders FC forward Eddie Johnson is expected to be available for Wednesday’s 7 p.m. CONCACAF Champions League game against Mexico’s Santos Laguna.

And he already has history with at least one member of the opposition — goalkeeper Oswaldo Sanchez.

Back in 2007, in a friendly against Mexico, Johnson was nearly taken out by Sanchez following a goal by Landon Donovan. Johnson crossed the goal mouth in celebration and was clipped by Sanchez on a sliding tackle, as seen at the 0:17 mark in the clip above.

I asked Johnson today about that moment.

“That’s the past,” he said. “Whenever the U.S. plays Mexico it’s pretty intense — sometimes guys lose their emotions. But no hard feelings. (He’s) a great goalkeeper and I’m looking forward to playing against him on Wednesday.”

Couple that with the “feud” between Seattle coach Sigi Schmid and Santos forward Herculez Gomez, and this series is getting quite interesting.
