New, 2 comments

RSL came out flat in a game were they needed points.

MLS: Real Salt Lake at San Jose Earthquakes Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Andrew Putna- 5.5 Putna was able to make a couple of pretty good saves, however, Wondolowski was in the right places to take advantage of his positioning.

Donny Toia - 5 Toia was not outstanding in San Jose having a very average game overall.

Nedum Onuoha - 5.5 Nedum didn’t find himself in trouble much,

Marcelo Silva - 5 Silva was aggressive as usual if not a bit reckless. His work rate was there either way.

Aaron Herrera - 6 Herrera created most of RSL’s best scoring chances whether through his passing or his ability to dribble through defenders. He was impressive, but there were a couple of miscues with his fellow defenders.

Nick Besler - 4 Besler did some decent things defensively, but was unable to connect on the critical passes and got beat a couple of times.

Albert Rusnak - 6 Albert was one of the better players on the ball during an otherwise sloppy game where RSL was out-classed.

Everton Luiz - 3.5 For a guy that usually has a forceful impact on the game, there was next to nothing to see from Everton in San Jose. A disappointing return to the field to be sure.

Maikel Chang - 4 Chang was a bit off for the 60 minutes he was allotted. His touch wasn’t there in the pass or in the shot.

Corey Baird - 4 Baird was largely ineffective on the wing, unable to put San Jose on their heels. He got a little ambitious when there were multiple defenders in front of him.

Damir Kreilach - 5 Kreilach put RSL in a position to score or potentially get a penalty, but

Substitutes

Justin Meram - 5 Meram had a good half hour to work with but did a few odd things in that time that just did not make much sense.

Pablo Ruiz - 5.5 Pablo attracted a lot of attention from the Quakes and changed what RSL was able to do on the field. Unfortunately, the front three were unable to break down San Jose.

Justen Glad - 5.5 Glad came on to help keep RSL from going down to ten men and held his own in the back.
