Sounders FC vs. Vancouver, lineups

vancouver home 2012.jpgWelcome to CenturyLink Field on a cool, cloudy Saturday afternoon.

We’ve got a big game today as the Sounders host rival Vancouver at 1 p.m. and, as you can tell, the tarps have been removed in the upper deck. The last ticket update I got was 54,000 on Wednesday, but that number has surely gone up.

A rested Seattle should be able to field a first-team lineup today, which likely means the new Big Four (Fredy Montero, Eddie Johnson, Mauro Rosales, Christian Tiffert). We’ll also have to see if Mario Martinez is involved. Vancouver has some personnel issues with Omar Salgado hurt. On top of that Martin Bonjour and Barry Robson suspended and Jay DeMerit is also a doubt as he recovers from a concussion.

I’ll post lineups here when they become available.

Sounders FC lineup: GK Michael Gspurning, D Adam Johansson, D Jeff Parke, D Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, D Leo Gonzalez, M Brad Evans, M Osvaldo Alonso, M Christian Tiffert, M Alex Caskey, F Mauro Rosales, F Eddie Johnson

Sounders FC bench: GK Josh Ford, D Patrick Ianni, D Zach Scott, M Steve Zakuani, M Andy Rose, F Fredy Montero, F Sammy Ochoa

Vancouver lineup: GK Joe Cannon, D Young-Pyo Lee, D Andy O’Brien, D Carlyle Mitchell, D Alain Rochat, M Gershon Koffie, M Jun Marques Davidson, M Dane Richards, M Kenny Miller, M Camilo, F Darren Mattocks

Vancouver bench: GK Brad Knighton, F/M Atiba Harris, M Russell Teibert, M Matt Watson, D/M Jordan Harvey, M Michael Nanchoff, M John Thorrington
