The Salt: In praise of Damir Kreilach

One of the ongoing narratives about Damir Kreilach is not if he ranks in the annals of great RSL players, but where he ranks. I will attempt to answer that question, but before that, let’s talk about tonight’s match against Vancouver, focusing in particular on Kreilach’s preternatural ability to find the back of the net.

The man has seven goals in just 11 games this season, a record that most strikers in the world would envy. He’s even doing this from a less-advanced position, with Rubio Rubin and Bobby Wood leading the line. The man is enjoying his soccer, and it shows.
