Real Salt Lake continues their much-vaunted home run of US Open Cup games today with a match against a team they defeated in their 2013 run-up, Portland Timbers.
And while the lineup for RSL will certainly be a second-choice one, owing largely to international duty and injuries, it should still be as hot a matchup as one would expect — not least because of the 100-degree weather that's likely.
U.S.: Nick Rimando, Kyle Beckerman
Costa Rica: Alvaro Saborio
Defenders: Chris Schuler is not yet 90 minutes fit after returning from surgery. Justen Glad did not train fully yesterday. Jamison Olave is potentially out until September.
Midfield: No reported injuries.
Forwards: No reported injuries.
