Veteran goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann will step into the spotlight for the Seattle Sounders in their CONCACAF Champions League semifinal match against Santos Laguna on Tuesday night (10 pm ET, Fox Soccer), and a win against the Mexican power could just solve the Sounders’ early-season woes.
Hahnemann, who will start Tuesday in place of the suspended Michael Gspurning, joined MLSsoccer.com’s ExtraTime Radio podcast on Tuesday to preview the match.
“It’s a chance to really get our season started,” Hahnemann said. “A good result here jumpstart our season. And that’s the sort of stuff we need.
“A lot our fans are coming out, and I think they’re as disappointed as we are with the start we’ve had,” he added. “We want to go out and have a great game against Santos, and entertain. That’s what we’re supposed to be doing.”
