Seattle Sounders midfielder Nicolás Lodeiro started, went the full 90 minutes and earned an assist on Monday in Uruguay’s 4-0 win over Thailand in the China Cup Final in Nanning, China.
Lodeiro assisted to Matías Vecino in the 6th minute to open the scoring for La Celeste. Gastón Pereiro, Cristhian Stuani and Maximiliano Gómez scored in the 38th, 58th and 88th minutes, respectively, to round out the scoring.
Lodeiro, who earned his 56th cap on Monday, also assisted in Uruguay’s 3-0 win over Uzbekistan last Friday.
The Sounders were off last weekend during the FIFA international break, but return to action on Saturday, March 30, at the Vancouver Whitecaps (7 p.m. PT; JOEtv, YouTube TV, 950 KJR AM, El Rey 1360 AM).
