Video and quotes from Argentina today

We've got more from Seattle's 3-1 training win today in Argentina. Nate Jaqua scored the first Sounders goal and talked about the match afterwards.

“We started a little slow obviously and we weren’t playing quite that well. I think the heat got to us a little bit. But we were able to kind of come back in the second half and put some good things together and score three goals and able get the win.”

Fredy Montero arrived at the field a few minutes after the opening kickoff, along with Jhon Kennedy Hurtado and Steve Zakuani, who had visited the U.S. Embassy to complete the necessary paperwork for the team’s return to the U.S. next week. “The game was good, it was very useful for what we are looking for. It gives us confidence and we get to know each other with every game we play. It will serve to reach the start of the season in the right shape.” Montero scored the winner and the third Sounders goal. “It was very beautiful, the first goal. I kicked it from far away, and the second one was a very good play by Alonso.”

Sounders FC faces CED, a collection of local free agents on Saturday, February 28 at 4 P.M. local (10 A.M. PT) in the second of five training games during the tour, which concludes on March 5.
