Sounders FC vs. Chelsea FC, lineups

Whereas, it’s officially Roger Levesque Day, I’m forgoing a picture of the stadium and posting this proclamation from King County Executive Dow Constantine instead…

Kickoff is nearing for tonight’s 6:30 p.m. international friendly between Sounders FC and Chelsea FC at CenturyLink Field. This will be the last game in Levesque’s inimitable career here in Seattle that dates to 2003.

What a night for his sendoff.

I’ll post lineups below when they become available.

Sounders FC lineup: GK Bryan Meredith, D Zach Scott, D Jeff Parke, D Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, D Leo Gonzalez, M Mauro Rosales, M Brad Evans, M Osvaldo Alonso, M Alvaro Fernandez, F Eddie Johnson, F Fredy Montero

Chelsea FC lineup: GK Henrique Hilario, D Branislav Ivanovic, D David Luiz, D Paulo Ferreira, F Nathaniel Chalobah, M John Mikel Obi, M Eden Hazard, M Josh McEachran, M Marko Marin, M Yossi Benayoun, F Romelu Lukaku

Sounders FC bench: GK Josh Ford, D Patrick Ianni, D Adam Johansson, D Marc Burch, M Steve Zakuani, M Michael Tetteh, M Mike Seamon, M Servando Carrasco, M Roger Levesque, M Andy Rose, F Sammy Ochoa, D Daniel Steres

Chelsea FC bench: M Michael Essien, M Ramires, M Frank Lampard, M Kevin De Bruyne, D Gary Cahill, D Sam Hutchinson, F Gael Kakuta, F Lucas Piazon, GK Jamal Blackman, D Todd Kane, M George Saville

Surprisingly goalkeeper Petr Cech isn’t available for Chelsea today. Absense of other stars (Fernando Torres, Juan Mata, John Terry, Ashley Cole, Florent Malouda, Raul Meireles) was expected.

For Seattle, no Michael Gspurning, Andrew Weber, Alex Caskey, Cordell Cato, David Estrada or Babayele Sodade due to injury.
