Sounders in morning friendly vs. Minnesota

After their Desert Diamond Cup opener on Wednesday, the Sounders have scheduled a friendly at 10 PT this morning against Minnesota United FC of the North American Soccer League.

"Obviously for the second group to get some more minutes, and then we had about five guys who didn’t play at all (in the 6-0 win over FC Tucdon)," coach Sigi Schmid said. "So between those 15 guys we’ll try and get them minutes and it’s another opportunity for them to play against a very good NASL team."

The friendly won't be streamed.

The Sounders return to Desert Diamond Cup play Saturday against Sporting Kansas City.
