Cristian and Alex Roldan are going to have somewhat of a homecoming experience on the Sounders' upcoming CCL trip to El Salvador.

The Roldan brothers (with the help of Will Bruin) also helped set expectations for the teams upcoming trip: its a mistake to take a CCL away match lightly.

With their varied styles - San Jose playing physical to try and control tempo, Portland with quick passing and movement - the systems couldn't be more different as the teams battle at Providence Park on September 7.

The San Jose Earthquakes enjoyed a dream season in 2012, blowing away all expectations on their way to a Supporters Shield-winning season, led by Chris Wondolowski's record-setting scoring campaign.

After putting together one of the best seasons in MLS history, Chris Wondolowski could be forgiven if the final goal he scored during this dream 2012 campaign was a penalty kick.

Though Steven Lenhart certainly appeared to embellish on his way to earning a valuable penalty, it isn't likely to be remembered for long that a questionable call helped draw the penalty Wondolowski buried to give him a league record-tying 27th goal on the season.
