Sacramento vs. RSL: Ricardo Velazco, Man of the Match

Ricky had a pretty good night for himself.

RSL didn’t look good against Sacramento. Let’s just be honest about that.

However, there were a few players that fought hard and showed well for themselves while others, well, let’s not go there.

Ricardo Velazco was one of the players that showed some determination throughout the entire match. He played with heart, and even though he surely wants a couple of his chances back, he did score the lone goal for RSL and never gave up even after the match was out of reach.

In a time where there are a lot of questions about players’ desire, Velazco showed he is ready to play hard and wants to be here.
