Rimando up for MLS Save of the Week
SANDY, Utah – Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando is up for his second MLS Save of the Week of 2014.
Rimando is nominated for his amazing reaction save on San Jose’s Chris Wondolowski in Saturday’s 3-3 draw at Buck Shaw Stadium. Rimando made the huge save in the 22nd minute when Wondolowski flicked on a Shea Salinas cross on frame from the penalty spot. The header looked ticketed for the back of the net, but Rimando came up with a miraculous save, reaching back with his left hand to paw the ball off the line.
Rimando won the first MLS Save of the Week of 2014 for his penalty kick save on LA Galaxy’s Robbie Keane in RSL’s 1-0 season opening win at StubHub Center.
Voting for Save of the Week runs until 12:59 a.m. MT on Friday. Make sure to cast your vote for Nick!
