Major Link Soccer: Stunning Sounders

The Seattle Sounders have dazzled and delighted through the first two weeks of the MLS season.

The Seattle Sounders won a second straight game to keep their spot in front of the Supporters Shield race early in the MLS season. Surprisingly enough, one of the other teams right behind them is St. Louis CITY SC, the newest team in the league. The USL Championship season is fast approaching, so it’s a good time to brush up if you plan to keep tabs on the league. Kim Little and Arsenal won the Conti Cup with a 3-1 win over Chelsea, and Liverpool’s men’s side claimed a feel great victory over Manchester United that pushes them within arm’s length of the top-4.
