Sounders crowd impresses USMNT, breaks records

As expected, the crowd at CenturyLink Field for the United States' 2-1 victory over Ecuador in the Copa America quarterfinals impressed spectators and players alike. The sheer size of the crowd of 47,322 was impressive on its own, but it created an excellent atmosphere that buoyed the team when they needed it most.

A number of USMNT players had positive things to say about the crowd afterwards:

Gyasi Zardes:

Former Sounder DeAndre Yedlin:

Bobby Wood:

Michael Bradley:

"The crowd was amazing. When you get to the second halves in games like this, it’s about finding any way to walk off the field a winner...the crowd and atmosphere can pull you through, and it did tonight."

Jozy Altidore:

The USMNT is now 6-0-0 all-time in competitive matches in the city of Seattle.
