We’re the champions my friends and we’ll keep on fighting till the end! In a town that’s starving for sport victories, the Seattle Sounders never disappoint. It wasn’t easy, coming from behind and with two goals of Sanna Nyassi, the Sounders beat Columbus Crew 2 to 1 and won for the second time in a row the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup championship.

In a Qwest Field packed with passionate fans, a record crowd of 31,311 people witnessed how a team that never gave up, displayed smart soccer and kept the cup home. Now, the team can’t rest. They know they are in the search of something more important: making the playoffs and with something else in mind: Winning the first MLS championship. If there’s something that this young  players proved yesterday is that they are capable of that and much more.
