The MLS brings us a sweet matchup from Carson, California later on tonight between the Los Angeles Galaxy and the Seattle Sounders. This is a game that most of us have been waiting for while others may be thinking this will be a bit too tough for either side.
Well, the winner of this one will be making a huge statement out West and overall in the entire league.
The home side boasts the talent of having Landon Donovan and Robbie Kean leading their illustrious attack. This is saying a lot since they are the reigning MLS champions for the past two years running. Therefore, they should not have to worry too much about their attacking abilities.
Then again, they are facing the best side in MLS right now.
The Seattle Sounders have Obafemi Martins, Eddie Johnson, Lamar Neagle and Clint Dempsey — one talented attack-minded player after the other. All four of these professionals can make or break games for opponents. They all have the trust of their teammates as well as coaching and managing staff.
Their most expensive and well-paid player is none other than Dempsey, who somehow still has been unable to find the back of the net for his new club. Tonight is a night where that could very much change, as a winning goal is perhaps how the Sounders could win in L.A. since their defense does not give up too many against their American opponents.
Another important figure for the Sounders will be none other than Ozzie Alonzo, who is their most trusted holding midfielder. It is his job to get those hard tackles in there on the opposing team’s most dangerous players to stop quick attacking plays. He also is responsible for distributing when no one else around him has that luxury during those specific moments.
Folks, this is going to be a mouthwatering matchup between two of the best sides that this league has to offer. This is simply a must-see for American soccer fans around the nation.
