They’ve sentenced us to a life of footballing misery so let’s sum up each of the Whitecaps starting eleven versus the Seattle Sounders in a sentence each.
They lost 3-0 by the way.
Max Crepeau- A good shot stopper who has yet to demonstrate he can command the penalty area or organize a back line.
Jake Nerwinski- A Major League Soccer full back.
Ali Adnan- A left back and consistently the most creative player in the team.
Jasser Khmiri- Not as good on the ball as he thinks he is. Treats defending as optional.
Ranko Veselinovic- A small sample size to make a judgement, but seems to have genuine quality.
David Milinkovic- Too ephemeral in every game he’s played.
Leonard Owusu– Could be good in a better midfield.
Hwang In-Beom- Has the ability to influence games. Hardly ever does.
Russell Teibert- Disrupts more Whitecaps attacks than opposition attacks.
Cristian Dájome– Doesn’t look good enough for Major League Soccer
Yordy Reyna– Has the ability to influence games. Hardly ever does.
Time for the Soccer Shorts player ratings.
