SOUNDERS MILLER ADDED TO U23S
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
DAVID SMITH - Tuesday, March 22, 2016
Seattle Sounders backup keeper Tyler Miller has been added to Andi Herzog's squad for their Olympic qualifier against Colombia, replacing the injured Freiburg keeper Zach Steffen.

Steffen suffered an injury with his German club over the weekend, and will be forced to miss the two-legged play-off against South American side Colombia.

The Freiburg youth player had started the first two games of the CONCACAF Olympic qualifying tournament last October, both group-state wins for the US, however was on the bench for the 2-0 semifinal loss to Honduras which forced them into the current play-off round.

He is replaced by Seattle backup keeper Tyler Miller, who will presumably act as Herzog's third option behind Ethan Horvath and Cody Cropper.

Miller had a brief stint in Europe, playing with then-fourth tier squad SVN Zweibrücken in Germany during the first half of 2015.

He joined the Sounders organization later that summer, where he has seen limited action - one game apiece - with both the Sounders' first and second squads.

The New Jersey native has also suited up twice for the Herzog's U-23 team, playing the second half in a loss to Denmark last March, then recording a shut-out two months later against Quatar in the Toulon Tournament.
