“Albert Rusnak’s not going to win Newcomer of the Year, but he for damn sure should be in the discussion. He's been one of the league's best playmakers over the past couple of months and is a worthy successor to the great Javier Morales.”

ESPNFC: – 11

“There is still room on the RSL bandwagon if you'd like to hop on. The class that Albert Rusnak and Jefferson Savarino displayed for their goals reflects the talent coach Mike Petke has at his disposal.”

“RSL is 6-2-3 since the end of June and defeated Portland, 2-1 on Saturday. Playoff-position rivals San Jose, Houston and FC Dallas, however, have games in hand.”
