This Seattle Sounders squad got themselves the needed result to advance to MLS Cup, so in a sense, nothing else matters. But where's the fun in that?
By fun we mean analyzing and rating each individual’s performance on the field. and there's plenty to go on there. No, Seattle wasn’t under bombardment for 90 minutes or lucky to squeak by with a win. But there were moments where the match could have taken a sharp turn for the worse.
So, on to your penultimate ratings assignment. How did they do?
Here's the scale:
(Substitutes can be left blank if the player did not play enough to judge)
1 - not a pro (USL/NASL/MLS) quality performance
4 - average USL starter
6 - average MLS starter
9 - MLS All Star
10 - MLS MVP-quality performance
