SANDY — Tuesday night’s international exhibition game against Eintracht Germany gave several Real Monarchs players a chance to shine at Rio Tinto Stadium. As the sun set over the mountains, Andrew Brody of the Real Monarchs scored RSL’s lone goal in the 10th minute of the match. He was “thrilled” when he got the call from RSL head coach Mike Petke that he would be included in the starting lineup for the match.
“It’s always an honor to get called up, and the biggest thing for me is just always be ready when called upon,” Brody said. “I’m pretty confident right now — I’ve scored a couple of goals in the last few weeks.”
The goal was possible with an assist from RSL’s Joao Plata to Brody for a straight shot into the net in the 10th minute. Shortly after, the crowd started chanting Brody’s name.
