Saprissa of Costa Rica and Real Salt Lake will meet in the semi-finals of the CONCACAF Tournament for a home and home match beginning March 15th, 2011 in Utah and April 5th in Costa Rica.
This is the furthest that an MLS squad has ever gone in the CONCACAF tournament so needless to say that the RSL fans are pretty excited about it. Personally, I have been hoping for this match-up for several weeks now — and watching to make sure that Saprissa advanced along with RSL.
After watching Saprissa beat Olimpia last night, I immediately booked my flight to Costa Rica so I can attend the match in April. Of course, I will be in Salt Lake for Game 1 on March 15th — cheering RSL on. (Sorry Saprissa fans). And, I will be wearing my #15 jersey — Saborio. 🙂
Anyone that wishes to join me at the stadium April 5th is welcome — but just know that I will be the one guy in the stands cheering for the guys in Red & Blue.
See you all very soon.
