Five players had changes

I have only included those that started halves, as late substitutions in the second half of these exhibitions don't seem to indicate much. For the role of appearance I have tried to compile based on the game reports from Matt Gaschk so as they are as consistent as possible. Sounders FC have used a straight 4-4-2 [[:, and a 4-4-1-1 [[-- so far. They have not used a Holding or Defensive Mid yet, at least according to the live blogs.

Legend
WB - WingBack, a defensive player on the sides that will make relatively frequent overlapping runs &/or crosses the ball into scoring positions
CAM - A central attacking midfielder. Someone who is tempo and pace of the offense and steers the movement of the team through his position and passing
St - Striker, I am using this as a central offensive forward who plays with ball at the feet. This can include a second striker such as Landon Donovan in a 4-4-1-1.
TF - Target Forward, a head player who tends to be the target of big crosses and corners. For American fans think Brian McBride or Brian Ching.
CDM- Central Defense Midfielder, also known as a Holding Midfielder.

Just updated with game 4 in Cali. Looks like they started the probably starting lineup minus Ljungberg who would replace one of Evans or Le Toux. Nyassi didn't start the final Cali match.
