Striker Luis Gil provided the end game to stunning move for the third goal.
Total football has come to Real Salt Lake after they sliced through Columbus Crew with an extraordinary 14-pass sequence on the way to their third goal in Saturday’s 4-0 romp.
Such was the slickness and patience of the Claret and Cobalt’s move before Luis Gil applied the finishing touch, it was reminiscent of the “total football” philosophy pioneered by Dutch club Ajax.
In fact it also evokes memories of Argentina’s incredible 24-pass cycle prior to Esteban Cambiasso’s goal in a group match against Serbia at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
