Even though Rusnak hasn’t fully found his footing, he is looking more and more like a bright spot on the field. Against the Galaxy, he was one of the few bright spots on the field. His crosses and passing channels were some of the only creative looks being generated. In a game where Real Salt Lake wasn’t at their best nor were they full strength, Rusnak was continually surveying the field to see what chances might be possible. Not much came of it, but not for lack of skill or effort.
Imagine what he’ll be able to do when Kyle Beckerman is on the field with him protecting the back of the midfield and when all of the preferred XI are working together.
