Real Salt Lake’s Albert Rusnak, the 22-year-old attacking midfielder tasked with leading chance creation, has been called in by the Slovakian national team for World Cup Qualifying.
In a club-issued release, a club spokesperson said Rusnak is anticipated to miss only one RSL match: March 25 against New York Red Bulls.
In the release, RSL general manager Craig Waibel praised Rusnak’s professionalism.
"We're pumped for Albert. His professionalism has been phenomenal. We haven't even seen his full potential after only two matches," RSL General Manager Craig Waibel said. "Getting called into your full national team, especially at 22, is an awesome opportunity for him and it's great for his development and evolution as a player."
