Morris leads MLS with eight goals this season, including a club-record four goals against Sporting Kansas City on March 25. He currently ranks third in club history with 50 MLS regular season goals and 60 across all competitions since signing with Seattle in 2016.

Roldan, 27, has 32 career caps for the USMNT, most recently being part of the squad at the 2022 FIFA World Cup QatarTM. Roldan has started all seven of Seattle’s seven MLS regular-season appearances in 2023, scoring a goal in the season opener against Colorado on February 26. Since being selected by Seattle in the First Round of the 2015 MLS SuperDraft, Roldan ranks third in club history (MLS era) with 287 appearances across all competitions, seventh with 37 goals and third with 47 assists.

Following an empathic 3-0 win over St. Louis CITY SC last weekend, Seattle Sounders FC hits the road to take on archrival Portland Timbers on Saturday, April 15 (7:30 p.m. PT / Apple TV, 93.3 KJR FM, El Rey 1360 AM.)
