Welcome to CenturyLink Field for the last time for an MLS regular-season game in 2012.
A lot of pregame attention here is on a pair of 4 p.m. kickoffs elsewhere. The Los Angeles Galaxy are playing San Jose in a game that could have implication in Western Conference playoff seeding. Vancouver is also hosting Portland in the final game of the 2012 Cascadia Cup.
The Sounders should have Eddie Johnson and Adam Johansson back in the starting lineup return after international duty. I expect Jhon Kennedy Hurtado will be able to play with the mask, but he and Steve Zakuani are the other injury concerns.
I’ll post lineups here when they become available…
