The Sounders have finished their final training session before their friendly with Tottenham at 1 p.m. Saturday at CenturyLink.
Clint Dempsey and DeAndre Yedlin were back at training after their time in LA for the ESPYs. Also at training was Make-a-Wish visitor Xander Bailey. I'll have more on Dempsey and Bailey in later posts.
For now, some personnel updates:
Coach Sigi Schmid said David Estrada, who was loaned yesterday to the Charlotte Eagles of USL-Pro, played 45 minutes with the Eagles last night and is expected to play 90 with them on Saturday. He's expected to return to Seattle after that.
Schmid also had this to say about health-related availabilities for Tottenham:
Estrada) He plays again on Saturday" "Still trying to make final decisions on that. I don’t think Brad’s going to play. Brad’s not going to be there. Leo’s not going to be there. But we’re seeing about minutes for Remick and minutes for Djimi."
