The Seattle Sounders have an incredible nine players competing in international duty during this window, including eight in 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifying. Here is a breakdown of who, when and where your Sounders are playing.



UNITED STATES — Clint Dempsey, Jordan Morris, Cristian Roldan


CONCACAF Hexagonal Matchday 7 vs. Costa Rica


DATE: Friday, Sept. 1
TIME: 3:30 p.m. PT

The United States continue their quest to #Get3 as they welcome Los Ticos to New Jersey for a massive home tilt before visiting Honduras next Tuesday. The U.S. are in third place in the Hexagonal, the final round of CONCACAF qualifying, three points behind Costa Rica and just one ahead of fourth-place Panama. The U.S. fell to Costa Rica on the road last November, effectively ending Jurgen Klinsmann’s time at the helm, before routing Honduras in March behind a hat trick from Clint Dempsey.


Dempsey enters Matchday 7 tied with Landon Donovan for the all-time U.S. men’s goalscoring record with 57 tallies and was instrumental in leading the Yanks to July’s Gold Cup title. Jordan Morris is coming off a three-goal Gold Cup showing, including a late game-winner over Jamaica. Cristian Roldan earned his first cap against Martinique during the Gold Cup as well and has earned his second consecutive call-up from Head Coach Bruce Arena.

Friendly against Canada


DATE: Saturday, Sept. 2

Although Jamaica and Canada were knocked out of CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying, they each have another opportunity to gain some valuable international reps when they face off in Toronto. Oniel Fisher and the Reggae Boyz defeated Canada in the quarterfinals of July’s Gold Cup, but an MLS-heavy Canucks side will get a shot at redemption. Fisher has seven caps for Jamaica.
