Nine members of the U.S. Men's National Team visited Seahawks players at practice this past Tuesday, and on Thursday night at Seattle's CenturyLink Field, several of those Seahawks returned the favor, attending the soccer club's Copa America Centenario quarterfinal match against Ecuador.
Head coach Pete Carroll, quarterback Russell Wilson, linebackers K.J. Wright and Mike Morgan, wide receivers Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse, offensive lineman Terry Poole, kicker Steven Hauschka, and tight ends Jimmy Graham and Cooper Helfet - dressed in USA jumpsuits - were among those who took in the USMNT's 2-1 win, a result that sends the team onto a semifinal match against the winner of Argentina and Venezuela, teams that square off on Saturday.
"I really just love what they represent," Hauschka said of the USMNT earlier this week. "There aren't many sports that we can play at the world level and compete, and that's one of them because every country in the world plays soccer. It's a global game. It's cool for those guys to be representing our country."
Social media reaction from the Seahawks' time at the game, including Wilson nailing a penalty kick on the CenturyLink Field pitch post-match, is laid out for you below.
