In last night’s Sounders 2-0 win over Salt Lake, RSL sent Tacoma native Rafael Cox — formerly of the University of Washington — into the game in the 84th minute.

I got a few of his thoughts after the game.

“It felt really good to come back home and be able to play,” he said. “I haven’t seen everyone for like two months now since we’ve been in preseason. It’s really good to get out there. It’s too bad the ball didn’t bounce our way tonight and we lost, but it was nice to be back home.”

I also asked him what he thought of his home area’s reception to Major League Soccer.

“I’m glad MLS is getting bigger all around the U.S.,” he said. “It’s going to get bigger in Salt Lake. We just got a brand-new stadium and we can’t wait to get back next week so we can play in front of our home fans.”
