According to Vancouver's Nigel Reo-Coker, it didn't matter who was wearing a Real Salt Lake jersey Saturday night at BC Place.
"They were the better team, they had the desire today, and we got taught a lesson, we have to be honest with ourselves," the longtime English Premier league player said after Vancouver's 1-0 loss to a Salt Lake team missing its usual suspects. "I have no idea what happened, I have no explanation, I'm going to make up no lies, no nothing. They've got a system that they play, we struggle with their system, we struggle with it regardless of who they play."
RSL coach Jason Kreis has been talking about his team's depth all season. After making 10 changes to his starting lineup from last week, that certainly was on display.
