Stefan Frei Show: Seattle Sounders goalkeeper comes up big vs FC Dallas

It's tough to blame Seattle head coach Brian Schmetzer for feeling the way he does about his starting goalkeeper Stefan Frei.

"I'd rather have our goalkeeper than any other goalkeeper in the league," Schmetzer told media after the Sounders outlasted FC Dallas 4-3 in Round One of the Audi 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs.

The veteran Frei only had to make five saves on the night but they all came at decisive times with the match in the balance, and most in extra time. Watch his big stops in the video above.

Frei's performance helped Seattle advance to a Western Conference Semifinal, a single-elimination match which they will host at CenturyLink Field on Wednesday night (10 pm ET on FS1, FOX Deportes, TSN, TVAS).
