Joevin Jones played the full encounter but his Seattle Sounders suffered a 3-1 loss to Club America in the  Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League quarter final clash at the Azteca Stadium in Mexico City on Wednesday night. Sounders lost  the two-game series 5-3 on aggregate.

“It’s always tough playing at the Azteca but again it’s disappointing to be out of the Champions League. Hopefully we can get our heads back together and bounce back with a good start to the league,” said Jones who had one attempt on goal during the match.

“We had three leads,” Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid said. “And our leads have lasted like three minutes.” The Sounders will turn their focus toward the MLS regular season opener on Sunday against Sporting Kansas City at CenturyLink Field.

Jones is expected to return home later this month to join the national team for the two 2018 World Cup qualifiers against St Vincent/Grenadines on March 25 (Away) and March 29 at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.
