DonвЂ™t forget about midfielder Albert RusnГЎk, either, their third DP alongside Lodeiro and Ruidiaz. That core, and similar players before them, have made Seattle a success-spoiled group. The Rave GreenвЂ™s 2022 CCL triumph is joined by two MLS Cups (2016, вЂ19), a SupportersвЂ™ Shield (2014) and four US Open Cups (2009, вЂ10-11, вЂ14).
And now itвЂ™s about making this North African occasion a memorable one, even if Seattle are coming off a month-long preseason camp and wonвЂ™t start their 2023 league campaign until Feb. 26. The Sounders, on paper, have one of MLSвЂ™s strongest lineups: club captain NicolГЎs Lodeiro and striker RaГєl RuidГaz remain as centerpieces, goalkeeper Stefan Frei is as battle-tested as they come, midfielder JoГЈo Paulo is back from a torn ACL he suffered in last yearвЂ™s CCL Final, and four players вЂ“ midfielder Cristian Roldan (US), forward Jordan Morris (US) and defenders Xavier Arreaga (Ecuador) and Nouhou (Cameroon) вЂ“ were at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
