Twenty players will travel with the Sounders this afternoon when they fly out to a two-game road trip: Thursday at Dallas and Sunday at Toronto.
Among them will be Michael Fucito, the hero of last weekend's win over Kansas City, who is nursing a knee injury suffered in that game. Fucito worked this morning at Starfire. And while coach Sigi Schmid said he seemed improved, he admitted that Fucito's status for tomorrow's game is undetermined.
The latest forecasts indicate that the Sounders should miss severe Texas heat, but that there could be thundershowers tomorrow evening in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.
