Chicago Fire became the latest team to suffer at the hands of Seattle Sounders, who have made a fast start in the 2019 MLS campaign by getting a 4-2 victory during the weekend. This was the third successive victory for Seattle Sounders, who do not have an inspiring pre-season. In fact, Brian Schmetzer was extremely disappointed to see his team lose most of the pre-season friendly matches and he had to stay very positive even after this poor form. However, Seattle have been able to continue the excellent form from the end of 2018 season even in 2019.
After the game, Edwards claimed that this was a major setback for Chicago as they were led on by bad mistakes. “We’re going to come out and try to impose our will on teams early.I’m very happy we were able to score four goals on the road. That doesn’t happen very often. It shows the quality of the team. Yeah, we let a couple goals in, but we can look at that, we can work on that,” saidSchmetzer.
