SigiSchmid, the Seattle Sounders coach, has indicated that he expects to have all his players fit when they will be facing Montreal Impact on Saturday.
There were several players that were out on international duties from the team. Clint Dempsey, Tyler Miller and Jordan Morris were out representing the United States; Joevin Jones represented his team Trinidad and Tobago while Oalex Anderson was out representing St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
All the international players were expected to be back by Thursday evening. Dempsey as well as Morris was already present for the Thursday morning session. Each one of them had a personalized training program because of their different roles and travels they had during the international break. Clint Dempsey trained inside while Morris was made to follow a lighter training program to help him recover quickly.
Anderson and Jones were expected to be back in the evening. On the injury front, only Jones is reportedly suffering from an ankle injury and SigiSchmid indicated that he will be assessed when he is back in training.
Morris, who was out with the United States under-23 team playing in the Olympics qualifiers, has returned to Seattle Sounders disappointed following the United States defeat 2-1 against Colombia.
He was quite down because he believes that the team was so close to making it to the Olympics and that now he is growing older he may not have chances to participate in this tournament.
On the other hand, Clint Dempsey was delighted with the United States victory over Guatemala 4-0. He scored one goal during the match which boosted the States chance of making it to the next World Cup. He told reporters that now their destiny is in their own hands and that they will have to stay focus if they want to make it to the next world cup.
