ASN Morning Read: RSL vs. SKC for all the Marbles

Everyone began the year chasing MLS Cup but only two teams are left to battle it out; the World Cup draws ever closer and Brazil is taking some steps to prepare; Mix Diskerud ftw.

  • On a chilly night in Portland, Real Salt Lake defeated the Timber 1-0 thanks to a Robbie Findley goal. The away side won 5-2 on aggregate and will play Sporting Kansas City in MLS Cup. SKC won 2-1 thanks to a Dominic Dwyer goal in the 63rd minute off a Benny Feilhaber assist.
  • Before the Western Conference final, ASN caught up with the Timbers' Darlington Nagbe. Worth a read, even if he won't be playing anytime soon. Of potentially playing for the American squad: "I follow the U.S., especially when some of my teammates or guys I know will be playing. I make a great effort to watch their games."

  • Mix Diskerud, now with more laser beam shots:
  • Brazil's president thinks the military needs to be involved with the Rio games. Cool story. "Last week General Azevedo was confirmed at a ceremony at a military base in Rio. He was supported by four more Generals and a Navy Admiral. This is not a military coup. After the debacle of Ricardo Teixeira and the vast expense of next year’s World Cup, [President] Dilma is making the point that sports officials cannot be trusted with public funds. Soldiers are public officials and she can control them."

  • Speaking of that, 200 days until the World Cup.
