The Sounders seemed closer to full strength today as Steve Zakuani, Adam Johansson and David Estrada participated, while Mario Martinez was held out.
Here was Sigi Schmid’s take on the situation:
“We wanted to see how Zakuani (ankle) was,” he said. “We wanted to see how David Estrada was. So now it’s how they feel after what they went through today, and then we’ll see what they’re going to be able to do on Sunday. … (Johansson) trained today. Today was his first full day of training, so we’ll see how he’s able to come through that as well.”
