Seattle look to cover missing Alonso

Seattle Sounders are likely to be without defensive midfielder Osvaldo Alonso this weekend and head coach Sigi Schmid needs his team to step up. "Osvaldo does a lot of things. He's a good recoverer of the ball. That's an important trait to have at midfield," Schmid said. "If you can have somebody there who can recover the ball, who can win a tackle, who can intercept a pass, who can make the ball go in the other direction when it's going toward your goal, that helps your team out immensely.

"So, Osvaldo has those qualities and also technically is very good. He covers a lot of ground. But other people have to step up right now."
