Real Salt Lake Duo Named To MLS Team Of The Week
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Real Salt Lake manager Freddy Juarez and dynamic midfielder Damir Kreilach have been awarded for their efforts against the Portland Timbers by being named to the MLS Team Of The Week.
Juarez regathered his team following a spell of poor performances and mustered an incredible 2-1 victory over the Portland Timbers on Wednesday evening. The Timbers entered the fixture on a five-game winning streak that included two batches of six-goal hauls against San Jose and the LA Galaxy.
Kreilach continued his goal-scoring form by slotting the opening goal of the game against the Timbers after Pablo Ruiz picked Kreilach out at the back post from a corner kick in which Kreilach put his laces through the ball on the volley beating Timbers goalkeeper Aljaž Ivačič.
Kreilach leads RSL in the goalscoring category with eight goals on the season to date.
“Overall, I am happy for the guys. They have put in the work and I think that they deserve the three points,” Juarez said in his post-game press conference.
RSL will now have a 10-day break before their next match against FC Dallas scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on October the 24th.
