DID YOU KNOW?
  • The Whitecaps are in the midst of some roster reshuffling, as they acquired Jordan Harvey from Philadelphia last week, then signed forward Mustapha Jarju as their second DP this week, before trading Terry Dunfield to Toronto FC for allocation money.

  • Real Salt Lake could be dealing with some fatigue, as it fielded nearly a first-choice lineup in Tuesday's 2-0 loss to FC Dallas in the U.S. Open Cup
  • Vancouver will have a quick turnaround after this match, hosting Manchester City at Empire Field in an exhibition just two days after facing Real Salt Lake.
  • RSL has now gone six MLS matches unbeaten after defeating FC Dallas 2-0 in league play on Saturday.
  • With Camilo's goal against Colorado last weekend, he tied Eric Hassli for the team lead with six.
  • RSL midfielder Luis Gil was named to the U.S. U-18 Milk Cup side this week. The tournament will take place July 21-30 in Northern Ireland.
  • Michael Nanchoff, one of two Vancouver first round picks this year, made his first MLS start against Colorado.
