Signature Moments: RSL in the All-Star Game

By Sam Stejskal

Real Salt Lake has had its fair share of solid moments in the MLS All-Star Game over the years.

Here are a few of the Claret-and-Cobalt’s best moments from the ASG ahead of tonight’s match between the MLS All-Stars and AS Roma. Enjoy.


July 25, 2012: Kyle Beckerman delivers the game-winning assist to Seattle forward Eddie Johnson in the 91st minute of the All-Stars' 3-2 win over Chelsea FC. 


July 27, 2011: The MLS All-Stars lost 4-0 to Manchester United at Red Bull Arena, but RSL defender Jamison Olave had a very memorable moment, showing tremendous speed to catch and then win the ball from Wayne Rooney in the first half of the match. Unfortunately, Olave sprained his knee later in the match, missing five games due to the injury. 


July 29, 2009: Rio Tinto Stadium played host to the 2009 MLS All-Star Game with a sold-out crowd of 20,124 packing the RioT to see the MLS All-Stars fall in penalty kicks to English Premier League club Everton FC. Three RSL players saw action in the match, with Kyle Beckerman starting the game and playing the first 45, Will Johnson coming on for Beckerman and nailing a PK  in the shootout and Javier Morales subbing on in the 64th minute.
