Sounders and Sporting KC Battle to 1-1 Draw

Ok, just a quick post today, as I have a bunch of work to get through before heading down to shoot the Sounders v Timbers derby match this weekend.

Basically, the big story before the match was the inclusion of Steve Zakuani in the 18 man lineup for the first time in an MLS match in nearly 14 months. The other big story was the physicality of the match. So, Sigi Schmid opted not to bring Zakuani into a match that was so brutal for his first time back. Will we get to see him play in Portland?

On to the photos…
