CCL: 'When you get to the final 8 they're all good'

The Sounders now know that when they resume CONCACAF Champions League play in March, they will be paired against either Santos, Pumas or LA.

We asked coach Sigi Schmid about the trio:

"They’re all good teams," he said. "When you get to the final eight, everybody’s a good team. Whether it’s Pumas or Santos Laguna or the Galaxy, they’re all going to be tough games. But if you want to win a championship you’re going to have to beat somebody along the way, so nobody’s going to hand it to you. So, whoever it is, we’ll get ready for them when that time comes."
