Sandy • If Jason Kreis had his way, he wouldn't be in Dallas this weekend.
The Real Salt Lake coach has major holes to fill all over the field after seeing five of his players called up for international duty this week. It's a hard reality Kreis said he hopes Major League Soccer won't always have to contend with.
"In an ideal world, we wouldn't play on FIFA calendar dates," Kreis said Tuesday. "But I know that we don't live in an ideal world. I know it's extremely difficult to make schedules in our league, and I think [the league is] continuing to make the right decisions. I think if you ask them, they would say the same thing. ... They're faced with too many difficulties to make all the things they want to have happen happen."
