Preseason Match Preview: vs Seattle Sounders FC
FC Edmonton will head into the club’s final match of their 2014 July preseason on Sunday, July 6 against the Seattle Sounders at the StarFire Sports Complex (3pm PT KO).
The Eddies have scored seven goals so far this preseason, five came in a 5-1 victory over a Kamloops All-Star team last Sunday in Kamloops, and two against Victoria Highlanders FC in a 2-0 win on Wednesday.
Seattle Sounders take on Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Saturday night so the team playing against the Eddies on Sunday will most likely feature those not playing the full 90 min in Vancouver.
“It’s a good way to start that’s for sure,” said FCE head coach Colin Miller. “We’ve looked dangerous and taken our chances and at the same time we’ve limited the opposition. Now, against Seattle, we go to another level. We’ll try out a few new systems because we’re now starting to really shape up for our home opener against Ottawa next weekend.”
FC Edmonton have spent the last week preparing for the 2014 North American Soccer League (NASL) Fall Season which is all set to kick off on July 13 against Ottawa Fury FC (4pm KO).
