Seattle Sounders striker Will Bruin has revealed his delight after getting onto the scoresheet during the 4-1 mauling of Houston Dynamo at home. The 28-year-old has gone without scoring for eight straight matches but he managed to end the streak by contributing the opening goal during the convincing triumph over Houston.
Speaking after the game, Bruin was relieved to have once more found the scoresheet and admitted that he had to make the most of the playing time after being handed just a second start in 10 appearances, he said: “For me personally it was good to get back on the score sheet. My minutes are limited now so I need to make the most of them. I think I did that tonight. I have scored goals every year in this league. As the league brings in higher quality players, a lot of them are attackers so I kind of have to evolve my game. I think I’ve done that throughout the years. Whenever I get my opportunities, I’m just going to do my job and try and score goals.”
