Seattle Sounders MLS Cup Champs 2016

Seattle Sounders MLS Cup Champs 2016, and what a battle it was.

Seattle Sounders have defeated Toronto FC with 5 goals over 4 in penalties after a scoreless play for 120 minutes in a frigid and extreme setting. Toronto fans would not believe how the group won the 2016 cup because they have given poor performances in the mid-part of August. When there was a coaching change until the playoffs, they have performed more eagerly and positively.

The group they have defeated in the Cup outplayed them for the most part of the soccer league. As a matter of fact, they have struggled a lot to make a perfect and amazing single shot. Nevertheless, they have given Toronto FC a challenging game because they have performed a resilient defence. With the help from Stefan Frei, the goal keeper, they have caused headaches to their opponents. Frei has given a fine work for a lunging and a one-handed save during overtime.

Even though they have performed behind their coaches’ expectations during the entire competition, they have prevailed against their strong opponents who only missed one penalty kick out of 6 chances. Unluckily, they missed two. That is why they have defeated Toronto FC with great resilience and determination. Though their performance appeared inferior, their fighting spirit and trust with each other are some of the reasons why they won.

The first part of the game became more physical. However, Toronto have dominated because they were also resolute to win their first MLS league championship. During the 15th minute of the game, Sebastian Giovinco, the star forward, effectively played the ball that has given Altidore the chance to assist Jonathan Osorio to make a shot. But, Stefan Frei made a great save. After 30 minutes of a competitive game, Justine Morrow crossed again to set up for Altidore but Frei performed an excellent defence.

Toronto FC was very conscientious to minimize Nicolas Lodeiro’s influence to his entire team, Seattle Sounders. At first, they were successful but the 2016 champions frustrated their opponent with an extraordinary defence with a spectacular performance from Roman Torres, the central defender. Since both weary teams did not have scores, they have settled a shootout. Seattle Sounders got 5 while Toronto FC got 4 to win their first MLS cup.

Because of the team’s success, Roman Torres and Stefan Frei were mobbed by their entire teammates. They were applauded and admired by many spectators who were present in the BMO Field. Colorado Rapids and Montreal Impact were also part of the MLS final four.But in the end, Seattle Sounders MLS Cup Champs 2016, and now we move on to EPL.
