Player Ratings versus New England Revolution

New, 5 comments

In the first preseason game of 2015, a few RSL up-and-comers showed that they are starting to find their way.

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Jeff Attinella - 6.5 Attinella had a good performance and an impressive save in the first half to keep New England goal free on their best chance of the game.

Abdoulie Mansally - 5.5 Mansally, as with many other players, needs to gel with the team a bit more. We'll see better things with time.

Aaron Maund - 5.5 Maund helped keep the clean sheet, but things were a bit shaky on more than one occasion.

Elias Vasquez - 7 Minus the miscommunication with Attinella a couple times, Vasquez looks very solid. He broke up more plays than anyone. Hopefully those miscues are language barriers.

Boyd Okwuonu - 5 Not a bad game for the rookie. He looks like he belongs and that is a good sign.

John Stertzer - 6.5 Stertzer drew the PK, but he did a lot of other things well too. Especially his movement.

Lucas Baldin - 4 Baldin gave the ball away cheaply more than anyone would like to see.

Luke Mulholland - 5 Mulholland did not do nearly as well as I would have expected him to do. Not a bad game, just nothing very memorable either.

Sebastian Saucedo - 6 Is it just me or is Saucedo playing like he has a few years of experience? This kid has a bright future.

Jordan Allen - 6 Allen was one of the more creative players on the field. He lacked making that final pass to finish things off, but he looks hungry.

Devon Sandoval - 6 Sandoval took the PK well. What I want to know is if he is taking the PKs because he is the best for it on the field or if he is in need of some confidence.

Substitutions

Demar Phillips - 7 Lots to like here. I have never seen anyone at RSL go up and down the field like he does. That will only help the attack.

Jamison Olave - 6 The verb is back and looks as intimidating as ever.

Chris Schuler - 6 Schuler looks like he is going to take off right where he left at the end of last season.

Tony Beltran - 5.5 Beltran had a nice game, but could not make that final pass on the breakaway.

Kyle Beckerman - 6 What else is there to say about Beckerman except that he is Mr. Consistency. No signs of aging after one game. He had a nice header but headed it too low and it bounced over the goal. You don't see that very often.

Luis Gil - 6.5 Gil had a nice shot and a couple of other bright moments. Here's hoping that he keeps building momentum in 2015.

Javier Morales - 6.5 Morales looks as creative as ever. It will be interesting to see how the midfield shares minutes this season if Morales doesn't drop off in stamina and skill.

Olmes Garcia - 5 Nothing notable for Garcia. He did have a couple looks at goal, but nothing that turned into conversion.

Sebastian Jaime - 6 I want Jaime to score. Badly. It will come. He does look like he understands the system better, but hasn't quite asserted himself. it's only preseason though.

Alvaro Saborio - 7 Saborio had a few shots that could have gone in if the rust was completely off. I expect at least 10 goals from Sabo this year.
