Despite having their seven-game points-scoring streak snapped against Colorado last week, Minnesota United is eager to build on that success and try to start another streak starting with the Seattle Sounders on Sunday. We were at practice on Friday.

"We know how good Seattle is. They played a great game against us to start the season. We need to find a way to match their intensity and hopefully come out of (game vs.) Seattle with a win," said Adrian Heath, MNUFC head coach.

Tyler Miller will get the start for United in goal on Sunday. Miller will be facing his ex-team.

"They (Seattle) know how to win. They have a rich tradition. I'm happy where our team is at currently and I know if we come out with the same fire as we've had recently, that we can have a great chance of getting three points," said Tyler Miller, MNUFC goalkeeper.

Defender Michael Boxall is continuing his rehab and is days away from returning to the lineup.
