Tony Beltran: “Everyone on the field should be embarrassed”

RSL’s veteran right back is more than just a little unhappy about RSL’s performance.

MLS: Real Salt Lake at Houston Dynamo Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

“Tonight was an embarrassment. Everyone on the field should be embarrassed ... I don’t care how hot it is.”

That’s Tony Beltran after tonight’s 5-1 loss to Houston Dynamo in an on-air interview with Brian Dunseth and David James.

It’s impossible to disagree with Beltran here, whose anger after the match was palpable.

Beltran continued:

We need to really look at the film tonight, because … all over the board, it’s not good enough. ... This was an opportunity for a six-point game. The Western Conference is good, and if we’re not careful, we’ll be left behind.

RSL’s 5-1 loss was perhaps their worst of the season, with the closest almost certainly having been a 4-0 loss against New England.

If you’re looking for intrigue in this, look no further than Beltran talking about not caring how hot it was on the field — that feels like a pointed criticism.
