How to watch World Cup Day 6: Colombia versus Japan to open the day and will Mo Salah play?

Tuesday sees darkhorse Colombia enter the field but the big question is: Will Mo Salah play for Egypt against tournament leader Russia? World Cup 2018 rounds the first milestone today as Group H makes their long awaited debut and we get the first of the second round games. Monday saw Sweden beat South Korea 1-0 with the first Seattle Sounder sighting of the tournament when Gustav Svensson subbed on in the 81st minute to help seal the victory. Then the second Sounder in World Cup history to wear a captain’s armband for a World Cup match as Roman Torres led Panama out of the tunnel to...

World Cup Day 5: It’s Seattle Sounders Day in Russia!

World Cup Day 5: It’s Seattle Sounders Day in Russia!

Monday sees Gustav Svensson and Roman Torres make their World Cup debuts while England versus Tunisia is an underrated finish to the day. World Cup 2018 gave us a Father’s Day to remember. Serbia scored a scorching free kick from Aleksandar Kolarov and held on to beat a toothless Costa Rica 1-0 before the fireworks really began. Mexico came out strong against Germany and got a first half goal from Hirving “Chucky” Lozano and held on to win the match 1-0 despite squandering numerous 3 on 1 counter opportunities to really seal the game. As Mexico finished off Germany all eyes turned...

Unlikely captain, unlikely team: Seattle Sounders’ Roman Torres and Panama at the World Cup

The hulking frame of Seattle Sounders FC Panamanian centerback Roman Torres will look somewhat out of place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. At 218 pounds, Torres is the heaviest player in Russia for the tournament. Still, the unlikely defender who became a national hero has hopes that his country can make the […] The post Unlikely captain, unlikely team: Seattle Sounders’ Roman Torres and Panama at the World Cup appeared first on Pro Soccer USA.

Gustav Svensson seems to enjoy eccentricities of life in MLS

Gustav Svensson seems to enjoy eccentricities of life in MLS

We’re not sure if he was totally joking about the guy who takes a bite of pizza whenever he scores... The Guardian took on the rather Herculean effort to profile every single player from every single World Cup team, and of course that means looking in on our own Gustav Svensson (Sweden) and Roman Torres (Panama). Svensson’s quote about soccer in the US is particularly fun - the rutabaga (a swede joke!), it seems, enjoys the ostentatious displays put on before the matches. “There’s fire, there are fireworks, big American flags and the anthem live before every game. I think that’s...

Roman Torres officially named to Panama’s World Cup roster

Roman Torres officially named to Panama’s World Cup roster

Based on the Twitter image, he’ll be front and center in their plans. In what should not come as any sort of surprise, Roman Torres is among the 23 players named to Panama’s World Cup 2018 roster. Panama made the official announcement on Wednesday, notably positioning Torres front and center in the social media image.

Sounders vs. Real Salt Lake: Three Questions

Sounders vs. Real Salt Lake: Three Questions

The Saturday, May 26, 2 PM match is between two bad teams. What will happen when a bad offense faces a bad defense? That’s the key question to be answered on Saturday, when the Seattle Sounders host Real Salt Lake (2:00 PM, JOEtv). Neither side is living up to preseason punditry and it is possible that the home-and-home series over the next week finishes off the hopes of one of the sides. Seattle will be without three players attempting to make World Cup rosters — Nicolas Lodeiro, Gustav Svensson and Roman Torres. Injuries are still a major concern as well. Real Salt Lake does not have...

Once again, a Liga MX Club is interested in Roman Torres

Once again, a Liga MX Club is interested in Roman Torres

The transfer window in Mexico opens on June 14 and closes September 5. It would not be another normal Seattle Sounders season, without a rumor about a former club or Liga MX team interested in Roman Torres; Pachuca, Pumas UNAM and Millonarios have been linked to the center back in the past few years. Now, after getting in contact with various sources, I was able to confirm “Los zorros” are not only interested in the Panamanian but are also willing to make a considerable investment in upgrading their backline. Atlas FC will have a substantial economical surplus after transferring Milton...
