RSL in Casa Grande: Preseason opener on Monday

By Sam Stejskal

CASA GRANDE, Ariz. - Real Salt Lake had the final practice of its Casa Grande camp on Sunday, training for a little over 90 minutes ahead of Monday's preseason opener against the Denmark U-20 national team. 

Sunday's practice was relatively light, with Claret-and-Cobalt Head Coach Jason Kreis putting his charges through some technical work before giving the team a tactics talk ahead of Monday's match. Expect Kreis to give minutes to plenty of players on Monday, as the technical staff will likely use the match to evaluate as many untested players as possible. 

Be sure to follow the @realsaltlake Twitter account for live updates of Monday's game, which will kick off at 11:30 a.m. MT at Grande Sports World. We'll have full postgame coverage of the Claret-and-Cobalt's preseason opener here on the official website. 

RSL will head back to Salt Lake City following Monday's game. The team will remain in Utah on Tuesday and Wednesday before departing on Thursday for Irvine, Calif. for the team's second leg of preseason. The Claret-and-Cobalt will train in Irvine from Jan. 31-Feb. 8, when they will return to Salt Lake again before heading back to Arizona for the FC Tucson Desert Diamond Cup from Feb. 11-24.
