Sounders teach Juve's kids a 3-0 lesson

The Sounders used a mish-mash line-up of starters and guests to easily defeat the young guns from Juventus Primavera 3-0 at Starfire. Goals came from Le Toux (2) and Tomlinson.

Most memorable appearance of the night? The sun.

It was a fun night to be out at Starfire watching some soccer, but little was learned about how good the Juventus youth players might be. I suppose we learned something about a few trialists that got match time for Seattle.

Costa Rican defender Michael Rodriguez is back in Seattle, and it appears just a matter of paperwork before he is announced as the next Seattle Sounders FC (MLS) player. Rodriguez played well wherever he was moved on the pitch last night. He has a genuine ease on the ball.

Kenny Cunningham was up top for the Sounders. He had flashy moments and could easily have scored late on if not for a brilliant save by Juve's Carlo Pinsoclio. Cunningham relied on playing too close to offside for my liking. Is he fast, or does he just lazily lurk hoping for the right call? Last night I'd say it was the latter.

Sebastien Le Toux converted a penalty kick (see video) after an iffy foul call. Le Toux then chipped the keeper a few minutes later and it was all but over.

In goal for the Sounders Frenchman Romain Salin was a compelling, stern-eyed competitor. Near the end of the first half Juve had a great scoring chance denied when Salin went horizontal to stab a ball off the line. The clearance rose high in the air and was redirected on goal. With Salin not yet to his feet Kenji Treschuk headed the ball off the line. A final header sailed over the bar.

Nik Besagno played well for the Sounders in his home debut. The Maple Valley product is trying to restart his career out of the shadows of the curse of being a number one draft choice at age 16.
