Full Time: That’s in. Sounders lose this one 3-1 but it was an overall a solid performance from a lot of the rotation players. Onto Sunday.
54’ Johnny Futbol Scores: Jonathan Campbell, who subbed on at halftime for the Sounders, heads home the corner kick delivered by Joevin Jones.
Halftime update: After a really boring 28 minutes of play, things picked up when Kelvin Leerdam picked his head up and delivered a perfect cross right onto the head of Raul Ruidiaz, who heads it just off the cross bar. A few minutes later in the 35th minute, Ruidiaz would find the back of the net on another ridiculous move that we’ve come to know him for, but he was flagged offside. Dortmund would march up the field on the ensuing possession and score the game’s first goal with a rocket from Marius Wolf. Dortmund would take the 1-0 lead into halftime.
1’ Living the Bheem: The Sounders are a top class organization. What a cool moment.
Typically you come to the gamethread to find some in-depth analysis of the Seattle Sounders’ upcoming match. That will not be happening today, given the match the Sounders are playing tonight is just a friendly against Borussia Dortmund, a team from the German Bundesliga. You can expect a lot of young players to appear for the Sounders, and we might get to see 45 minutes from Dortmund’s regulars. This gamethread will be updated periodically throughout the match. Think of this as a gamethread lite.
