CINCINNATI, Ohio – He already had one goal earlier in the game against FC Cincinnati and Real Salt Lake midfielder Albert Rusnak added another with a penalty kick goal in the second half to put RSL up 3-0.

Earlier in the first half, Rusnak scored the first goal of the game just minutes after dislocating his finger while attempting to force an opponent out of position.

His goal in the second half, his fourth of the season, came after teammate Jefferson Savarino drew a penalty after a hard tackle by FC Cincinnati Kendall Waston in the 58th minute. Rusnak took the penalty kick and booted it into the goal to complete the brace for the game.

After converting the goal, Rusnak was nicknamed “Albert Four-Fingers” by RSL TV analyst Brian Dunseth, who also had a terrific Cadbury Egg-themed call on Rusnak’s first goal.

Should RSL hold on and win against FC Cincinnati, it’ll be the club’s first road win of the season.

The match between RSL and FC Cincinnati can be streamed live on KSLSports.com and the KSL TV app.
