Seattle Sounders FC's Official Card to Support Zakuani
Seattle Sounders FC's Official Card to Support Zakuani

Tonight, the Seattle Sounders try to wash a bad taste. This is not the taste of poor play, but of poor circumstances. Two of their own will be out for months, and so now Seattle faces Toronto FC not just looking for 3 points, but looking for answers as to what the future holds.

Aron Winter has been trying to get a 4-2-1-3/4-2-3-1 to work, but is struggling to find the right personnel. They also had a midweek game and travel troubles, so small things are in Seattle's favor.

For those with last minute printing needs of the #11 - Zakuani No. 11 card

Today's game is on KONG 6/16 and 97.3 FM for radio at 7:00 PM
