"I’m excited for them," Sounders general manager Adrian Hanauer said today. "I hope they get a chance to get some minutes. They’ve both earned it. They’ve worked their tales off and are very high-quality players. And we’re excited that (coach Jurgen Klinsmann) called them in and hopefully they’ll represent the Rave Green well in these two friendlies."
