MLS: Seattle opens season with fanfare by curling Minnesota


The Seattle Sounders hit home on Friday in the opening day of Major League Soccer (MLS), the North American Championship, crushing Minnesota United FC 4-0, with a brace from Raul Ruidiaz.

Joao Paulo opened the scoring in the 49th minute for the Sounders, the 2019 and 2016 champions, with a bright 25-yard shot into the left top corner of goals guarded by Dayne St. Clair after a poor dismissal from the Loons defense.

A double from the Peruvian Ruidiaz

The Peruvian Ruidiaz, after seeing his penalty stopped by St. Clair in the 29th minute, then deceived the Minnesota goalkeeper twice in three minutes, in the 70th and 73rd minutes.

Colombian Fredy Montero, who returned this season to the club he had worn from 2009 to 2012, sealed the score in the 86th minute. As part of this first day, the Columbus Crew, defending champion, will host the Philadelphia Union this Sunday.
