Sounders Insider

Sounders down to one practice game Saturday before the real thing

Here's some of what coach Sigi Schmid had to say about tomorrow's rematch match:

"If we would have won the New England game we would have been playing in the finals against Salt Lake,

and that would have been good to play somebody that we haven’t played before," he said. "But those two teams (DDC finalists RSL and Colorado) are the two highest teams in terms of point totals, so they play each other. Playing Kansas City is better than playing New England again, because we meet them in a week. And certainly we didn’t want to play FC Tucson again. So it all worked out, and it will be good."
