The Sounders take the pitch Saturday night (04-04) against the Houston Dynamo, with several stars poised to return to action. Of most importance to the Sounders is the return of forward Clint Dempsey (Duece).
Dempsey strained his hamstring several weeks ago playing in a friendly with the US Mens’ National team. Originally expected to be out for 2-3 weeks, Deuce has informed the team that he is ready for action.
Duece’s return is a boon for a reeling Sounders attack that has struggled to get good quality shots on goal. The Sounders have dropped a game and tied another with the absence of Dempsey.
Other important stars to make their return tonight include:
- Marco Pappa
- Osvaldo Alonso
- Obafemi Martins
- Chad Marshall
The Rave Green crowd will be rocking CenturyLink stadium tonight as the Sounders will field, for the first time this season, their entire starting lineup.
