Alvaro Fernandez and Mauro Rosales receive their green cards

The Sounders announced Friday that midfielders Alvaro Fernandez and Mauro Rosales have received their green cards. Earning permanent resident status means the two designated players will not count as international players on the roster (teams are allowed eight, unless they trade for more slots).

We had known that Rosales would get his as coach Sigi Schmid broke the news about five weeks ago.

Fernandez was believed to be the next in line having joined midway through the 2010 season.

The Sounders should have no problem complying with the international roster limits. Those currently taking up international slots are goalkeeper Michael Gspurning (Austria), defender Adam Johansson (Sweden), midfielder Christian Sivebaek (Denmark), midfielder/forward Cordell Cato (Trinidad and Tobago), midfielder/defender Michael Tetteh (Ghana) and midfielder/defender Amadou Sanyang (Gambia).

Andy Rose (England) remains unsigned for now, but would also take up a spot.

Sanyang remains on the roster, but hasn’t been with the team the past few weeks. His guaranteed contract runs through March and he’s exploring options with other teams.
