Seattle’s Patrick Ianni Channels Ibrahimovic for Equalizer vs SKC

Sporting a new, late-1980s-style soccer haircut, and returning to the starting lineup for the first time since injuring his back on May 5, Seattle Sounders center back Patrick Ianni scored on an acrobatic side volley in the 15th minute to lift Seattle into a 1-1 tie with visiting Kansas City last night.

Here it is:

Kansas City’s Jacob Peterson had opened the scoring in the eighth minute, taking a pass from Aurelien Collin after a KC throw-in into the Seattle box, and hitting a deflected shot past the Sounders’ third-string keeper, Andrew Weber.

The result extended the Sounders’ winless streak to a franchise-record six games, while stretching Sporting’s unbeaten run to four matches.

Both teams return to action this weekend as Kansas City visits Philadelphia on Saturday night and Seattle heads down I-5 for a meeting with Cascadia archrivals Portland on Sunday (5:00 ESPN).
