But the Major League Soccer club will also represent the United States in the FIFA Club World Cup, making history as never before had an MLS team achieved this feat. 

The match was hard-fought in the first half, but once Brian Schmetzer's team scored the first goal, the Universitarios fell apart, allowing the home team to score 3 goals and take the cup.

This is how Seattle Sounders beat Pumas UNAM

The duel began with a hard-fought first half in which the intensity overflowed and in the 7th minute of the match Pumas' Galindo committed a hard foul on Nouhou on the touchline and became the first cautioned player of the match just in the first minutes of the game.

And the intensity of the match continued to grow, so the fouls did not stop appearing, however, in the 45th minute, the scoreboard opened when Raúl Ruidíaz shot to the center of the area and a deflection of Diogo de Oliveira sent the ball into the back of the net and the Sounders take advantage in the last breath of the first half.

This way the teams went to the break but when they returned to the second half the Sounders decided to take control of the match, so in the 80th minute, the second goal of the match was scored.

The U.S. team mounted a very good counterattack and Raúl Ruidíaz finished the play with a shot, which served to put the 2-0 on the scoreboard and crumble the Mexican club. 

This was noticeable because, after the first goal, Andrés Lillini's team tried to go on the attack to tie the score, but after the second goal, the Liga MX team practically fell apart. And in the 87th minute, the match would also be decided by a brilliant play. 

A shot in the area that was saved by Talavera left the ball alive in the area and Lodeiro arrived to push in the rebound and put 3-0 on the scoreboard, thus sealing the match.

And although Pumas UNAM made some attempts to go forward, the result was already decided and the Sounders only had to wait for the referee's whistle to celebrate their first international title.

The Seattle Sounders have made history and are going to the FIFA Club World Cup.

In this way, the club led by Brian Schmetzer managed to make history as they are the first Major League Soccer team to reach the FIFA Club World Cup, an achievement that no other team in the league has.

In this way, the club has achieved a goal that they had set since the beginning of this tournament in which they remained undefeated in their matches played at Lumen Field.
