In a preseason game for Sanna Nyassi of Colorado Rapids, against former club Seattle Sounders, Montero scored twice and assisted on one goal to give the Sounders a resounding 3-1 win over the Colorado Rapids on Wednesday.

Nyassi, who joined Colorado Rapids in the off-season after two years with the Sounders, came in as a substitute in the 71st minute.

"I know it is preseason but, still, everybody wants to win to make sure you are prepared for the season," said Nyassi on club's website.

Colorado midfielder Jeff Larentowicz notched the visitors' lone tally from the penalty spot.

Omar Jasseh's San Jose Earthquakes may have found a recipe for success in their run to the 2010 Eastern Conference final, but they are looking to keep it fresh as they prepare for 2011, according to goal.com.

The Earthquakes during the preseason can boost wins over MLS Cup champions Colorado Rapids as well as English outfits Birmingham City and Colchester United.

The real test for the newly looked team will come in the team's home opener on March 19 against Real Salt Lake, but with the team looking confident, they will certainly have a shot.


The Gambia football pair Abdourahman Dampha and Pa Modou Jagne are faced with a tight struggle in their various teams in the ten-team Swiss Super League.

Dampha's Neuchâtel Xamax at 9th on the table are faced with the prospects of going into a relegation play-off with just 22 points in 23 matches.

Neuchâtel Xamax will play away to Thun on Sunday in week-24 matches.

Bottom placed St. Gallen's 2010/11 league campaign appears to have fallen into the bins after it has consistent plugged at the bottom of the table with so far only 17 points in record.

Jagne' and the relegation bound side St. Gallen with only a few matches to go, have a tie to settle with Swiss giants, the Young Boys, when they host them on Sunday at the AFG Arena.

The Gambian mid-fielder has so far scored a single goal during his side's famous 3-1 win over Zürich in February.
