The Seattle Sounders debuted at CenturyLink Field on Wednesday night in Preseason presented by Advocare, falling 2-0 to Uruguayan outfit Club Nacional.
With Seattle's Nicolas Lodeiro wearing the captain's armband against his boyhood club, the visitors scored on either side of halftime to take the victory.
Though the Sounders lost, there were a number of bright spots for the CenturyLink faithful, though. They got their first live glimpse of Jordan Morris after injury derailed his 2018, while also getting a chance to see 15-year-old academy product Danny Leyva, who continued to train with the first team after their return from camp in Arizona.
