Preseason’s only just begun, but Real Salt Lake first game has already been played. The team drew 0-0 with Croatian First Division side NK Istra 1961 in a three-period scrimmage.
Istra 1961 posted video of the scrimmage, and while it’s not exactly the brilliant stuff you see come out of our club, it’s a true glimpse at the team, and the first one we’ve really had this year.
The video isn’t that exciting, really — it’s short, it’s from a distance, and, presumably, it largely focuses on Istra 1961’s play. Still, it’s something, right?
