SALT LAKE CITY – Real Salt Lake’s heroic victory against Sporting Kansas City on decision day to send them into the playoffs sent social media into a frenzy, as you would expect.

For those that missed it, here is the goal:

Real Salt Lake fans across the Beehive state were jumping for joy following the miraculous 95th-minute winner scored by Damir Kreilach with the final kick of the regular season.

The win gave Real Salt Lake the final playoff position. Prior to the 2021 season, many “MLS Experts” pegged Real Salt Lake to finish at the bottom of the western conference. The Real Salt Lake social media team kept those receipts and publicly shamed the so-called “MLS Experts” in a video that is sure to make you chuckle.

But that is not where it ends, even the Real Salt Lake Director of Communications Trey Fitz-Gerald was seen throwing shade towards former manager Freddy Juarez suggesting that he did not believe in this group of players.

Ironically, Real Salt Lake will now travel to Seattle for a date with the Sounders. The date and time of kickoff are yet to be announced.

But finally, the celebration in the locker room and on the tarmac must be seen by all. Real Salt Lake was an entire vibe all of last night, and deserving of every second of joy experienced.
