Sounders FC vs. San Jose, lineups

It’s a pleasant evening here at CenturyLink Field for an MLS showcase tonight between Sounders FC and the San Jose Earthquakes.

The big question coming into the weekend was the availability of Christian Tiffert (ankle) and Mauro Rosales (quad) — though coach Sigi Schmid gave strong indications in a KIRO interview yesterday that Tiffert would be able to go and Rosales wouldn’t.

As a reminder, Seattle can clinch a playoff berth with a win or tie, but realistically needs a win to stay in the Supporters’ Shield race (San Jose has a nine-point lead). The Sounders could also drop as far as fourth in the Western Conference with a loss and wins by Real Salt Lake and the Los Angeles Galaxy.

I’ll post lineups here when they become available.

Sounders FC lineup: GK Michael Gspurning, D Adam Johansson, D Jeff Parke, D Patrick Ianni, D Leo Gonzalez, M Christian Tiffert, M Osvaldo Alonso, M Brad Evans, M Steve Zakuani, F Fredy Montero, F Sammy Ochoa

Sounders FC bench: GK Andrew Weber, D Marc Burch, D Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, D Zach Scott, M Andy Rose, M Mario Martinez, F David Estrada

San Jose Earthquakes lineup: GK Jon Busch, D Steven Beitashour, D Jason Hernandez, D Victor Bernardez, D Justin Morrow, M Mehdi Ballouchy, M Rafael Baca, M Sam Cronin, M Simon Dawkins, F Chris Wondolowski, F Alan Gordon

San Jose Earthquakes bench: GK David Bingham, D/M Ramiro Corrales, F Steven Lenahrt, M Khari Stephenson, D Jef Zayner, D Ike Opara, M Brad Ring
