Seattle defeated Charlotte FC with just one goal difference this Sunday, in week 14 of the United States – MLS 2022 tournament. The goals of the match for the local team were scored by Jordan Morris (26′ 2T) and Raúl Ruidíaz (35′ 2T) . While the away goal was made by Benjamin Bender (21′ 1T).
Raúl Ruidíaz made the stadium vibrate with his definition, in the 35th minute of the second stage. After an individual play from the left, the striker hit the goal from outside the box and dislodged the rival goalkeeper by nailing the ball into the corner. Jordy Alcívar took a tremendous shot 20 minutes into the first half and the ball hit the post. It could not be.
Raúl Ruidíaz was the figure of the match. The Seattle Sounders striker scored 1 goal and finished off the opposing goal 3 times. Another important player in the match was Jordan Morris. The Seattle Sounders midfielder was the author of 1 goal and shot on goal 3 times.
The game was quite fought, in which the fouls began to accumulate. There were several cautioned: Joseph Mora, Andre Shinyashiki, Jordan Morris and Nouhou Tolo. Seattle head coach Brian Schmetzer laid out a 4-5-1 strategy with Stefan Frei in goal; Alexander Roldan, Yeimar Gómez, Xavier Arreaga and Nouhou Tolo in the defensive line; Obed Vargas, Albert Rusnák, Cristian Roldan, Nicolás Lodeiro and Jordan Morris in the middle; and Raúl Ruidíaz in attack.
