There has been a lot of questions asked about Seattle Sounders prior to the start of the season, but they seem to be responding in the best possible fashion. Seattle Sounders came out of the Champions League quarter-finals after suffering a defeat at the hands of Santos Laguna, which has led to a lot of questions being raised with regard to the ability of the team to fight at the top of the table.
However, led by the hugely impressive former United States goalkeeper Kasey Keller, they seem to be doing extremely well. The loss of players like James Riley has been one of the crucial factors in the supposed instability of the team prior to the start of the season.
So far, there have been for games played in the regular season and Seattle sounders have been able to get by them by just conceding two goals. This hugely impressive record has enabled them to get two victories in the last four matches. Patrick Ianni has been an impressive defender for Seattle Sounders in these matches, as he has played every minute of the four matches so far this season.
And it’s even more impresseive when you consider that, according to betfair.com, the only defender to play all the four matches is Patrick Ianni.
“It’s important. I don’t think the group ever lost confidence or faith after that game in Santos, but it was a rough one. You have to pick yourself back up and get going again,” Patrick Ianni said. “It’s just a matter of us all being on the same page. The defense isn’t just the back four; the whole team is doing a really good job of getting after guys and winning their duals on the field,” said Parke, who returned to the team after the injury to Hurtado.
