Seattle Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid reflected on a great start to his new team's season and admits it was everything the team wanted. "It was everything you dreamed," Schmid told his club's official website "The beauty in any game is in the final result and it was a beautiful result. Three-nothing at home in the opener for this franchise and MLS. The crowd was outstanding. The atmosphere was tremendous."

Seattle Sounders first road game of the season is against Real Salt Lake on Saturday 28th March.
