Sounders FC

Daily coverage of Seattle Sounders FC, MLS and world soccer.

No Sounders named to MLS Best XI

mls logo newFor the first time in three years, there were no Sounders named to the MLS Best XI, which was revealed Tuesday.

This isn’t a huge surprise following a disappointing season in Seattle. Very few of the ballots I saw from reporters leaguewide had any Sounders FC representation — I think Osvaldo Alonso made a couple.

Previous representation from the team has come from Freddie Ljungberg (2009), Kasey Keller (2011) and Alonso (2012).

Here is this year’s team:

GK Donovan Ricketts, Portland
D Jose Goncalves, New England
D Omar Gonzales, LA Galaxy
D Matt Besler, Sporting KC
M Will Johnson, Portland
M Tim Cahill, New York
M Graham Zusi, Sporting KC
M Diego Valeri, Portland
F Marco Di Vaio, Montreal
F Mike Magee, Chicago
F Robbie Keane, LA Galaxy

A couple notes: You’ll notice MLS Cup finalist Real Salt Lake has no representatives. Golden Boot winner Camilo also didn’t make the cut. And you’d expect Ricketts to follow up and win MLS Goalkeeper of the Year after this honor.

What do you make of the team?
