SALT LAKE CITY – Real Salt Lake interim manager Pablo Mastroeni has been named a finalist for the National Soccer Hall of Fame.

Mastroeni was originally one of 35 former players to be eligible, now he is one of just 20 individuals to be named as finalists in the Player Ballot section. The 2022 Hall of Fame class will be inducted following a presentation scheduled for Saturday, May 21 where a maximum total of three players, two veterans, and one builder will be inducted.

Mastroeni’s professional playing career spanned 16 seasons in Major League Soccer. During that time he represented three clubs, notched 65 caps for the United States National team, lifted the MLS Cup as the captain of the Colorado Rapids, and impacted many lives with his desire and passion for the game of soccer.

Mastroeni appeared in a grand total of 334 regular-season games and 27 playoff games.

Former notable Real Salt Lake representatives Javier Morales and Jason Kreis were not voted as finalists.

Currently, he is in the process of preparing Real Salt Lake for a playoff run as a first-round playoff battle against Seattle awaits.
