Tim Howard & Nick Rimando bid farewell to an MLS career
The Real Salt Lake and Colorado Rapids goalkeepers played their last home regular-season match during the weekend, saying goodbye to their fans.
Time has reached two of the greatest goalkeepers in MLS history, with both saying goodbye to their fans by playing their last regular-season home matches, before putting an end to a glorious career.
Rio Tinto Stadium saw Real Salt Lake goalie Nick Rimando handle the nets one last time in the 2-1 victory over the Houston Dynamo marking his 513th MLS season game, a fantastic run for a keeper that overcame any doubts thrown his way, adding up more than 46,000 minutes played, more than any other player in league history, helping RSL win the MLS Cup in 2009.
The Colorado Rapids shutout win (3-0) over FC Dallas, was the 99th regular-season appearance for the iconic goalkeeper, Tim Howard, who came back to the MLS after his European journey where he played with Manchester United and Everton.

Rimando could yet have another match in front of his fans at Rio Tinto, with Salt Lake still fighting for a home playoff game.
