VANvSEA Starting XI: Returning internationals bolster the lineup ahead of Cascadia clash

The Seattle Sounders are taking on the Vancouver Whitecaps (7:00 p.m. PT; JOEtv, Prime Video, 950 KJR AM, El Rey 1360 AM) at Providence Park. Here is the Delta Starting XI:


  • With the return of Xavier Arreaga, Raúl Ruidíaz and Gustav Svensson, Sounders FC welcomes its three recent international players back into the fold. 
  • Having previously tested positive for COVID-19 while on international duty with Peru, Ruidíaz has completed his quarantine, been fully evaluated by medical professionals and determined safely eligible to play tonight by Major League Soccer. In the eyes of the league, he is what General Manager & President of Soccer Garth Lagerwey recently referred to as “a recovered person.”
  • Joevin Jones makes the matchday roster for the first time since suffering a high ankle sprain against the Portland Timbers on September 23.
  • Due to a slight knock suffered in training yesterday, Will Bruin is not able to go tonight.
