Sounders train, fly to Colorado

The Sounders went through an early and short training session this morning before heading to Sea-Tac and Colorado for their match tomorrow against the Rapids.

During brief interviews:

SIGI SCHMID confirmed that Clint Dempsey (hamstring) will travel with the team.

BRAD EVANS said he's ready for any role tomorrow after playing 10 minutes for the USA national team Wednesday in its 2-0 win over Mexico. He added that the temporary grass surface at the Alamodome may have been the worst surface he's ever played on.

GONZALO PINEDA said he enjoyed his time as FS1 analyst for the USA-Mexico friendly, and joked that Chad Marshall already has paid him for Pineda volunteering on the broadcast that Marshall should be on the national team.
