While most of Real Salt Lake is getting a bit of a break from extended action, designated player Albert Rusnak is getting very much the opposite.
He’s been called up to Slovakia for an exhibition against Jordan and a Euro 2020 qualifier against Azerbaijan.
Those matches take place on June 6 and June 11, respectively.
This will rule Rusnak out of RSL’s U.S. Open Cup match against LAFC, but it should not rule him out of any further matches.
In a club-issued release, RSL general manager Craig Waibel described it as a “great opportunity” for Rusnak.
“Albert has been a key factor in our current run of form and this call-up is a testament to what he’s done for Real Salt Lake. This, again, is a great opportunity for him to continue to put his stamp on Slovakia on the international stage and we are happy for him to have earned that opportunity.”
