Real Salt Lake head coach Jason Kreis admits he is delighted to finally have opened the Rio Tinto stadium, even though his side only managed a draw.

The first match at the new stadium ended in a 1-1 draw against New York Red Bulls.

Kreis said: “It was a fantastic experience out there tonight, and a terrific atmosphere for a big game.  I think, maybe, it was too good of an atmosphere, really, for what we saw out there because the quality of the soccer, I think, was a little bit lower than what we’re used to seeing over the past few weeks. I think our guys looked very, very nervous.

“I don’t think our possession was crisp enough tonight.  A lot of that, to me, was because players were nervous about losing the ball and were making decisions a lot later than they usually do.  Usually we make those decisions, we play the ball, and we move on.  I think tonight we were just a little half-second delayed because we were nervous.”
