Holy cow. Djimi Traore you are a crazy guy. I like where the Seattle Sounders are headed with this guy in their defense. The fact that he can also score screamers like this has to put the rest of MLS on notice.
Seattle and Traore completed the impressed comeback last night against Tigres in the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Champions League. Now they head to the semifinals after becoming the first MLS side to knock out a Mexican team in the knockout format of this tournament – very impressive feat to say the least.
Tonight we’ll see if the Houston Dynamo can make it two-for-two this year in the CCL knockout stage when they head to Santos Laguna. LA is also up for a trip to the semifinals when they host Costa Rican side Herediano tomorrow night in LA.
Boy it would be great to see three MLS sides reach the knockout stage. That would be a first in this competition for the league as well.
