Player Ratings: Vancouver 4-0 RSL

New, 5 comments

RSL played flat in Vancouver.

MLS: Real Salt Lake at Vancouver Whitecaps FC Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

Andrew Putna - 4 Simply put, Putna did not show us that he deserves to start for RSL. He is capable of making a decent save, but does not do it enough.

Ashtone Morgan - 5 Morgan looked alright on the left side of the field even though the score line did not reflect it.

Justen Glad - 6 Glad was one of the few players for RSL who looked like they came to play. He had some nice saves even if it wasn’t a perfect game.

Marcelo Silva - 3.5 Silva was reckless in his time on the field. He committed an unnecessary aggressive foul in the middle of the field for no apparent reason leading to a yellow card and had another head scratcher in the 72nd minute that shockingly did not lead to a red card. He was also credited with an own goal.

Noah Powder - 4 Interestingly, Powder probably had RSL’s best shot of the night. On the flip side, he completely failed to track the runner on Vancouver’s third goal.

Nick Besler - 4 Besler gave the ball away cheaply allowing Vancouver to put RSL on their back heel.

Pablo Ruiz- 5 Pablo played with anger which may explain why he was not entirely effective in the middle of the field.

Albert Rusnak - 5 Rusnak was unable to get very involved, breaking a good run of form over the past while.

Jonathan Menendez - 5.5 Menendez had a few flashes of skill in which he was able to put the ball in a good spot for RSL’s attacking players but the connection was never made.

Justin Meram - 5 Meram had a couple of looks at goal and squandered them.

Rubio Rubin - 5 Rubin did not see much of the ball at all and therefore was unable to make much of the time afforded him.

Substitutes

Maikel Chang - 5 We did not see much from Chang as the first sub for RSL.

Anderson Julio - 6.5 Julio brought a much needed attacking prowess to RSL. Even though the game was already lost he once again found a way to score with very little time on the field.

Everton Luiz- N/A
