Well, Damani Ralph continues to put a stranglehold on the MLS Rookie of the Year Award by burying a one-time left footed laser volley near post in second half, giving the Fire a 1-0 lead at the time, on its way to a 2-0 defeat of the Gals. And he continues to do all the other things that top forwards do -- hold balls, make combinations, play defense, win balls. This kid is the real deal. Meanwhile, on the broadcast, when Tyrone Marshall subbed in for the Gals in the second half, Jack Edwards said something striking. According to Jack, Marshall has advised Ralph NOT to play for the Jamaican national team, but instead get his American citizenship and play for the USA. Jack said something to the effect that Marshall believes there would be more opportunity for Ralph with the USA, while there is lots of competition at forward with the Reggae Boyz. I don't know whether this is good advice, or bad, but it certainly is interesting.
