+

Former Real Salt Lake academy standout Maikon Orellana has renewed his contract with Danish side IF Brondby. Orellana, a striker, trained several times with RSL. Orellana will also be joining the El Salvador U-20s ahead of their entry into the FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Attinella back with RSL

+

Jeff Attinella has returned to the squad, leaving us again with four goalkeepers. He won team of the week honors once during his time with Ft. Lauderdale Strikers of the NASL. Does this open an opportunity for the young Lalo Fernandez to go on loan? He's impressed during the reserves matches he's played this season.

The fog around NY2 has lifted and what's emerged is almost (but not entirely) unexpected. England's Manchester City FC and the New York Yankees are partners. An interesting development, to be sure.

Robbie Russell retires, pursuing medical field

Former RSL right back and defensive stronghold Robbie Russell has retired from D.C.

Carlos Salcedo red card rescinded

3

RSL communications is reporting that Carlos Salcedo's red-card-producing-yellow-card has been rescinded, which means the player will be eligible for tomorrow's match. Interestingly, the card has been applied to Beltran, and if I'm to be honest, I have no idea what it's really for. A foul? I didn't see one — or at least much of one. At any rate, it's great to see, because we might really need him on Saturday. And that he did well enough on Wednesday to be eligible for consideration is remarkable in and of itself.
