Seattle Sounders midfielder Nicolas Lodeiro, Gaston Ramirez and Fede Valverde have all been omitted from Uruguay's final World Cup squad.

Altidore, Morris top list of key players for Toronto and Seattle in MLS Cup

Jozy Altidore's best highlights in Major League Soccer.

The 2016 MLS Cup marquee barely has room for all of the names that deserve a place of prominence on it. Toronto FC and the Seattle Sounders bring a wealth of talent to the game, thanks in large part to the willingness of their respective owners to spend big money in the quest for a title.

But the names aren't on the metaphorical marquee just because they're highly paid. These two teams have stars who have delivered, both in the regular season and throughout the playoffs. Nearly every player who...
