"We’re going to need to bring in a league goalkeeper or do something there," Schmid said. "We’re working on that right now. We think if he lays low for a week or so we think that he’ll be OK, but we’re not 100 percent sure."
What is believed to be a hip injury forced Boss to the bench and Kasey Keller into the starting role Tuesday in Seattle's 2-1 loss to Saprissa in CONCACAF Champions League. Both Saprissa goals seemed preventable ... the first an apparent miscommunication between Keller and defender Zach Scott, the other a put misplay by Keller.
Keller didn't talk to the media after the game, but he did after training at Starfire today.
"I made a mistake," he said of the game-winner that went through his hands. "Simple as that. It happens. Obviously I’m not happy. It happens. But if you’re a goalkeeper it’s going to happen to you. Now you just gotta try to go another bunch of games without making a mistake. And that’s really what it comes down to: training today and getting ready for Saturday. ... You know it’s going to happen. You don’t know when, and you work like hell every day to try to hope that it’s not the next game. It was my time at a bad time, and you hold your hand up, and you try to go another bunch of games without making a mistake."
And the first goal?
"I think it was just a case where somebody thinks there’s more time, and there’s not, and later you think, 'Wow, I should have cleared that," he said. "And then it was just unfortunate: I make the save, and then sometimes it bounces your way and sometimes it doesn't. That seemed to be the theme after we scored yesterday."
Forward Fredy Montero also missed the game with a quad injury. And he's also out Saturday due to yellow-card accumulation. However, he expressed no doubt that he will be ready for the playoffs.
