CCL: Seattle Downs Santos Laguna 2-1, But More Importantly What Did You Think of Those Kits?

At first glance, we were somewhere between on the fence and not-in-favor-of, but now, after watching these highlights we are warming up to the Sounders’ teal-and-neon-yellow new unis.

Maybe it was the brisk, one-touch play the home side used to defeat Santos Lagunas in the first leg of their CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal on Wednesday night. That may have cast the potentially garish kits in a better light.

In any event, judge for yourself in the recap from the Sounders’ website below, which shows UCLA alum David Estrada nodding home the first Seattle goal off a terrific chip over the top from Fredy Montero, and then, moments after 2010 U.S. World Cup veteran (and former Seattle Sounder) Herculez Gomez equalized for the visitors, Brad Evans heading in the winner from Mauro Rosales’s cross.

See here:

The teams meet for the second leg in Mexico—historically a difficult place for MLS sides to play—next Wednesday, March 14 (8:00 p.m. ET, Fox Soccer).

    They look like a team of goalkeepers. From 1995.
