SALT LAKE CITY – It took Chicho Arango just 23 minutes to score his first goal for Real Salt Lake.

Arango’s last Major League Soccer goal came on October 30 for LAFC in the MLS Cup Playoffs.

Only five players have scored in their RSL debut.

RSL has struggled with capitalizing on scoring opportunities for the majority of the season.

The Arango signing aimed to address that shortcoming.

He showed very quickly that he could provide just that for the club.

Chicho Arango to debut in RSL vs. Orlando City SC

RSL kicks off against Orlando City on Saturday, July 8 at 7:30 p.m. (MDT). The match will be Arango’s first time stepping on the playing pitch as a member of Real Salt Lake.

In early June, it was reported that RSL would land the former member of LAFC.

Arango will join a squad that is trending up and recently entered the top 10 of MLS’ Power Rankings.

RSL’s last loss came in a 3-2 result against the LA Galaxy on May 31. Since then, the club has posted five victories, four in MLS and one against the Galaxy in U.S. Open Cup action. RSL also earned two points via a pair of draws in that timespan.

RSL owns an 8-6-7 record this season.
