Sounders at FC Dallas, lineup: Alavro Fernandez and Erik Friberg inserted

New, comment

Torres takes the captain’s armband.

With a few key starters out head coach Brian Schmetzer looks to Erik Friberg to defend in the midfield partnership with Cristian Roldan. The wide attackers are Herculez Gomez and Alvaro Fernandez, already back from his hamstring injury. Joevin Jones is back to his regular starting role.

In an odd twist it is Roman Torres wearing the armband.

The bench is highly limited as Brad Evans, Oalex Anderson and Nelson Haedo Valdez are all out due to injury. An injury plague is striking the Sounders just as they will need all hands on deck, on short rest for the play-in game in under two weeks.

If Schmetzer needs offense late in the game that burden will fall on Homegrown Players Darwin Jones and Aaron Kovar. Tyler Miller, Zach Scott, Tony Alfaro, Oniel Fisher, and Michael Farfan round out the bench.
