Easy win for Real Salt Lake

July 3, 2010

Fabian Espindola bagged a brace as Major League Soccer champions Real Salt Lake thrashed the New England Revolution 5-0 at Rio Tinto Stadium on Friday night.

Argentinian forward Espindola opened the scoring after 27 minutes before Jamilson Olave doubled the hosts' advantage on the stroke of half-time.

Alvaro Saborio dashed any hopes of a Revolution comeback with a third goal seven minutes after the interval before Espindola's second goal five minutes later made it 4-0.

Substitute Robbie Findley completed the rout five minutes from time as RSL stretched their unbeaten run to nine games.
