Sigi Schmid is going with a 4-5-1 if the team twitter account is to be believed. The outside mids are Lamar Neagle and Thomas with Chad Barrett up top. The central triangle will be Osvaldo Alonso behind Gonzalo Pineda and Cristian Roldan. Troy Perkins is replacing the injured Frei with Charlie Lyon making the 18 for the first time.
Bench: Lyon (22), Ockford (21), Gonzalez (12), Azira (42), Rose (5), Craven (99), Jones (17)— Sounders Matchday (@LIVESounders) July 11, 2015
S2 studs Jones and Craven are the bench forwards.
Former MVP Mike Magee is starting for Chicago Fire, which could mean that they are capable of scoring a goal. Harrison Shipp starts wide and left.
