Defender Jamison Olave has been granted his immigration "green card" as a permanent resident of the United States, meaning he no longer must occupy an "international" roster spot for RSL.
That's good news, insofar it creates a vacant international spot that the team can use to sign a new international player — though it probably won't be doing so anytime soon.
General manager Garth Lagerwey wonders whether the league rules about international roster spots will be liberalized after the season due to the complications that the Canadian teams must endure under them. But if that doesn't happen, the international spots will remain as valuable as they are now, which means the team's new flexibility will be good to have.
The team still has four players occupying its five international spots — Javier Morales, Fabian Espindola, Alvaro Saborio and Nelson Gonzalez.
