We are live at the IMG Soccer Academy in Bradenton, Florida, where the Sounders FC will take on the University of Central Florida in preseason action.
We are about 15 minutes from kickoff.
We will have a new trialist in today's game and the club has decided not to name him at this point, but it looks like he will be starting in the midfield today.
Makes for interesting conversation, but I'm not one to speculate on this.
The two teams are warming up now. Seattle is in green shirts and socks with shale shorts and UCF is in all white.
We'll release the lineups shortly, but I don't think any of the players who started on Tuesday will play today.
Seattle's lineup: GK Bryan Meredith, RB Richard Martinez, CB Tyson Wahl, CB Zach Scott, LB Michael Tetteh, RM Roger Levesque, CM Servando Carrasco, CM Trialist, LM Miguel Montano, F David Estrada, F Pat Noonan.
Sean is no longer with the team.
The fence behind the Sounders bench is lined with players from the IMG Academy.
UCF lineup - GK Shawn Doyle, Ben Hunt, Camillo Rendon, Chris Feigenbaum, Cam Cooskey, Nik Robson, Kevan George, Warren Creavelle, Andrew Quintana, A. Jay Nelson, Luiz Yamashita.
Positions are not necessarily reflected in the lineup for UCF.
We are under way from Bradenton.
2: Miguel Montano shoots from distance, but the UCF keeper makes the stop.
Prieto is still in camp, yes.
3: Cam Coskey slides a ball into the box from the right side, but Seattle defends it away.
4: Good possession and passing by Seattle, but UCF takes it away at the top of the box.
5: The Sounders trialist sends a ball across the box for Roger Levesque, but his header goes wide.
I believe that's Nate Jaqua.
He won't be playing today.
Please refer to the earlier post on him.
8: David Estrada chips over the goalkeeper from inside the box, but misses wide for a goal kick.
Probably more of the latter.
9: David Estrada buzzes past the UCF defense, but his cross back to the middle can't find the runner.
