The Seattle Sounders played an exhibition match against Tottenham Hotspurs that ended in a most entertaining 3-3 draw. However the real story of the day was witnessing a dream come true for Xander Bailey, who had his wish fulfilled by the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Sounders to become a professional soccer player.
