The Seattle Sounders will have the services of leading goal scorer and top assist man Jordan Morris and Nicolas Lodeiro for Wednesday's match against the Houston Dynamo (9:30 p.m. CT, ROOT SPORTS). Both players were released early from their respective national team duties.
The Sounders expected to have Morris back, who has scored 12 goals in his rookie campaign. The MLS Rookie of the Year contender made a 30-minute substitute appearance for the United States in their 2-0 win over Cuba last week.
The availability of Lodeiro comes as a bit of a surprise for Seattle, but the playmaker picked up a yellow card and accumulation suspension while on duty with Uruguay. Lodeiro scored a diving header in the first half for La Celeste in a 3-0 win over Venezuela on Thursday, but his yellow card in the second half ruled him out for their match on Tuesday against Colombia.
He returned to training in Seattle on Monday, where he has three goals and eight assists in just 10 games since making the move from Boca Juniors in July.
