The USA men won a rough World Cup qualifying match on the road last night.

Meanwhile, here’s the Sounders’ report on their scoreless draw with the Whitecaps last night:

The Seattle Sounders and Vancouver Whitecaps played to a 0-0 draw Wednesday night at Starfire. Chris Eylander made seven saves to secure the clean sheet and help earn the Sounders a point.

The tie moves the Sounders into sole position of fourth place in the league standings with 33 points, and provides a bit of momentum after losing two consecutive games last week (1-3 at Minnesota, 4-3 in penalties after 1-1 tie following regulation and 30 minutes of overtime play; and 3-0 at home to Puerto Rico). Vancouver remains in second place with 39 points. Seattle has five games, all at home, and 15 potential points remaining to secure a top seven position and a playoff spot.

Next up for the Sounders is a Sunday night game at Starfire against the Carolina Railhawks. Kickoff is set for 7:00 pm.

More info is available at the Sounders’ website.
