It was always gonna be 3-0 in Seattle

Can confirm, beating Pumas 3-0 at home is cool (Don’t)

Ouch.

Oooooh man

We seem to love that scoreline, lol.

Hey if it works, no need to fix it lol

They get to qualify for the FIFA Club World Cup which may/may not even exist anymore


death_by_retro

At least a team from MLS qualified before the tournament went away


gopac56

That makes Sounders eternal champions, right?


christianjd

Someone say, enteral champions? 😏


[deleted]

It feels like they are letting it exist in this limbo space simply to appease China (the scheduled hosts), but with their COVID zero strategy and their horrid Olympics, I am not sure how that even happens.


lojer

Let's just host it in Seattle.


bleakmidwinter

They are changing the format.


LordRobin------RM

Wait, seriously? This is the same thing that happened back when DC United won the old CONCACAF Champions Cup. World tournament was canceled.


[deleted]

It was supposed to be in China and it usually happens in December. With the World Cup and China's COVID issue, it just seems FIFA has forgotten all about it


black-op345

Well they did play the recent edition of the club World Cup back in February in the UAE. No seriously, they moved the 2021 competing from China to Japan, and when Japan had its problems it was moved to the UAE. It’s possible that they will just move this one too.


RonanB17

There have been rumors this may be the final yearly version of the CWC, with it shifting to being the full replacement for the Confederations Cup and being the test tournament for WC hosts every 4 years


U-N-C-L-E

In my unbiased opinion, they should host it in the U.S. this year


ArseneLupinIV

WE WANT LIVERPOOL!


dilla506944

Fucking immense performance, Seattle. Got damn.


Dangerous--D

I was worried when Nouhou got injured and mentally prepped for doomsday when JP got injured. We couldn't possess for 10 minutes after that, but then Vargas and Rusnak found their groove and everything was gravy. 10/10 would watch again.


dwhitnee

Sure, let’s bring on the 16 year old to replace our MVP 10 minutes in, What could go wrong. But damn he stepped up. A friggin high school sophomore anchored a shut out. He’s probably gone to Europe next week.


CanIBeGirlPls

It didn’t really feel like Vargas ever settled in, there were a few bad touches and unforced errors/giveaways, but he definitely did enough and to invent winning the CCL at age 16 I mean that speaks for itself


vulgarro

68,741 attendance. 3-0 score. congrats on getting it done Seattle.


Ocelot91

From a Pumas fan: Seattle sounders were the better team and they deserve it. Congratulations.


Daneldor

Thanks, you're a good sport.


cascade7

Thank you. Your fans were class in the stadium tonight. Respect


DawmCorleone

Bro they were so loud... mad props to them


handi503

They were loud as fuck *an hour* before kickoff. It was awesome!


The_Italian98

I was straight up grooving with their drummer


Doctor_YOOOU

Thank you :) good luck in the clausura


Ocelot91

Doesn't look good there either. This team is gassed and the emotional blow was too much.


Matt_McT

At least you know you can count on Dinenno for a goal or two. What an incredible player.


Gombr1ch

I am shocked that man is not playing in Europe


pnwdude17

From a Sounders fan: I hung out with some of you guys before the game and you were cool as hell. Good game


Sea-Queue

Hey - we had a few Pumas fans in my section tonight. They were super great and rep'd your team well. Hope to play you all again in another finals match up!


attakburr

Y’all were classy tonight after the game. I’m glad we got to have a final against Pumas. Knew nothing about y’all heading in. But really appreciated the friendliness of fans in the stadium and the players at the end were 👍🏻 Wish more of the stadium had cheered for highest scorer and runner ups.


WestSideBilly

South end gave them a pretty good cheer (including ECS, which is never a given). Mostly felt bad for Dinenno. Really impressive player, but getting an individual award when your team lost is such a hollow feeling.


red_white_and_soccer

So happy for Rowe!


MrOstrichman

Rough year for Mexican soccer fans


lord__pigeon

No kidding... woof.


rockayama

I think Club América fans are happy tonight.

Yep! I'm at O'Donnell's rn getting fucked up!


TheGreatSpagett

sideswipem

Beautiful thing to see!! I don't care what the haters say about the quality of this Pumas team, the fact is MLS has been improving significantly and this is the culmination of decades of effort in the league, and of course in Seattle specifically. The crowd speaks for itself, the team's performance speaks for itself. Congrats to the new champs!


Dangerous--D

I think being in the stadium gave me tinnitus, 10/10 would do again. And would someone please ANSWER THAT GODDAMN PHONE???


Fritzed

Also, it's not like pumas were the only Mexican team to lose in this tournament. They aren't even the only Mexican team that the Sounders knocked out.

Yes. Only recommend for clearing sinuses.


DarkwingMcQuack

It’s crazy how the Sounders have played in a cup final 11 out of their 14 years as a MLS team. They could very well pass DC and LA in trophy count in the next few years at this rate.


Barthez_Battalion

DC's turn to irrelevancy is embarassing. They're gonna be like those English fans who are like "remember when we were in that cup final in 1976? We're a big club because of that" they even though the team is perennial low table Championship.


notataco007

jgweiss

really raises the bar for MLS teams; everyone else is now catching up to seattle. this was something special, and i hope all the sounders fans soak it in!!


CougFanDan

Oh I’m soaked all right


WooWoopSoundOThePULI

I hated having to root for MLS tonight but I have done so for far too many years to not be proud to have seen it happen live. Props to a Rival in representing MLS soccer quality.


DigitalSea-

The ownership down to front office with Lagerway, the current team and the GA winning academies. My money is on Seattle being next to 5 MLS cups. Hopefully the rest of the league is paying attention.


LafayetDTA

So happy it's us! Have been a fan since 2014 from over here in Italy and had to watch the final despite being on vacation in Germany and a 4am kickoff! SOUNDERS 💚💙

LukaJovicBeMyDad

Fight and won?


Dangerous--D

*fought


SonOfMechaMummy

Just remembering when Brian Schmetzer was announced as no longer just being the interim manager and some pundits suggesting this lacked ambition from the Sounders and laughing and laughing.


Nomadic_commenter

LAFC fan but fuck me I have so much respect for Seattle and its fanbase. One of the big reasons I took the MLS seriously as a kid. Beyond stoked to see you guys win this game at home in front of a sold out crowd! Massive, massive moment for this sport in this country let alone the league. True pioneers of this league. Wow. Just wow. Seattle Sounders. Born in ‘74.


nonstopflux

As a kid? Fuck I’m old.


Fritzed

Meanwhile, Vargas (who played most of this match) wasn't in kindergarten yet when the sounders joined MLS


Audicity

I need you to stop, I already feel old enough as is.


time_man21

I'm born and raised in western Washington, but I live out in suburban Maryland with my wife and two young kids. My Dad and I have always been really close, especially when it comes to sports, but with the continent between us and COVID interrupting travel we've had to keep our Sounders interactions to a weekly chat on the phone. When the Sounders made the final I looked into flights and tickets, but it was just too much with kids and expenses. But it just so happens that my parents had been planning a trip out my way at the same time. It wasn't at Lumen with the 68,000 plus fans, and it wasn't on a big screen because I couldn't get the Chromecast to work, but we made do. My Dad and I just watched our first Sounders game together in four years on my laptop screen, and it was a win in perhaps the biggest game in club history. This was so, so, so special in so many ways. I will never forget tonight. Thank you all for being a part of it in some small way. FIGHT, AND WIN!


DenverSubclavian

Congrats man! Sounds like a great moment. Enjoy it. Great to be a soccer fan in USA right now


vinylshrapnel

Schmetzer is a dynasty coach. Change my mind.


MrDeedinIt

When he walked to the fans and asked “wasn’t that fucking awesome?” I got pretty jealous, not gonna lie. Pineda is still our man, but damn. Schmetzer is the cool dad you never had. Fucking legend.


lojer

With his coaching style, I wish he'd get a chance with the USMNT, but I really don't want to see it happen.


vinylshrapnel

I’m not sure he would ever take off that crest. But if the USMNT came calling he may just say yes considering his advice to Pineda.


Zorrino

I think he’d do it. When your country calls, I think Schmetzer serves.


gaberdine

His country is Cascadia, though.


TheMonsieur

It has been a long time coming. Congrats Sounders, and rep us well in the Club World Cup!


foxontherox

Y’all, I just Klopp fist pumped for Seattle all alone in my living room. GG!

ZGM_Dazzling

I always rated him, but I didnt realize he was THIS good


Dangerous--D

Yep, he was integral to the buildup on all 3 goals and was the pass before the pass on two of them


outerspacetronaut

He stepped up big time when JP went off. He made a few mistakes after that, passing off to Vargas (the 16 year old from Alaska) but recognized that if we were going to have an attack, he had to find the spaces forward. Big game for him. And props to Rowe and Vargas for both filling in for some irreplaceable talent and performing well when it was asked from them.


forsither

It's crazy how he lights up in big games.

Welcome, newcomers. The tradition of CONCACAF begins with the airing of grievances. I got a lot of problems with you people! And now you're gonna hear about it!

TheCoal-cracker

Good for Seattle, them and us have always been friends since our first match.


Throwawaygunshowoff

So about 20 minutes into the game a club representative comes to my row and ask me if I'm "throwawaygunshowoff" I say yeah. She says "it just so happens that you bought the record breaking ticket for a CCL match, we have a tee shirt for you" then they took my picture. Lol so, that was fun.

ivaorn

The work doesn’t end with winning a CONCACAF Champions League. This will invigorate other MLS clubs to emulate what the Sounders have achieved. And now the Sounders have to show up and perform well in the Club World Cup! But for now, congratulations to them.


lord__pigeon

They have a stadium near the heart of the city and History going back to the mid-70s, and a fan base that can pack an NFL stadium on a Wednesday on short notice. Pretty impressive, tough to replicate. I guess Portland is like that. Maybe if LAFC ever get to the final they'll play at SOFI, but if I was a fan I wouldn't like that. Whatever, pretty dope to see Seatle beat the breaks off Pumas.


ivaorn

Ok it won’t be one for one, but now I can look to a top tier of 5-7 MLS teams that could be on the precipice of winning a CCL if they make the right moves.
