Club León vs. Sounders: Highlights, stats and quotes

Sounders fall 3-2 to León in Leagues Cup final.

The opportunity was there for the taking. Through 60 minutes, the Seattle Sounders had a well-deserved 1-0 lead and were the team seemingly more likely to score next. But a trio of subs changed the game and several defensive errors sealed the Sounders’ fate as they eventually fell short of their first international trophy, falling 3-2 to Club León.
