Confirmed: Nick Rimando is still the penalty king

New, comments

You didn’t forget about what Nick Rimando can do. He’s still reminding you.

MLS: New York City FC at Real Salt Lake Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

Real Salt Lake’s first-half against Seattle Sounders was, in a word, boring. The team sat back, gave Seattle time and space to do basically whatever they wanted.

During that time, Nick Rimando was tested once or twice, and he looked very good along the way.

And, of course, RSL conceded — not that we need to watch that again, but Rimando was left with no chance after the ball deflected off Reagan Dunk.

But here’s why we’re here. Nick Rimando. Penalty saves. You know. This is exactly what you’d expect from the Greatest Goalkeeper in MLS™.

So. Yeah. Nick Rimando is still the king of penalty kicks, and he’s not about to let anyone forget that.
