Sal Zizzo, acquired July 21 in a weighted lottery, practiced with Chivas USA this morning for the first time. The players who saw time in the match vs. Pachuca Wednesday night were not on the field, working instead on regeneration excercises.

The remaining Goats took to the grass for passing and possesion drills as well as small-sided games. Head Coach Martín Vásquez emphasized the importance of keeping the passes short and simple to work the ball effectively back and forth across the pitch. Zizzo participated in the passing drills, then joined a rehabbing Justin Braun in mobility excercises and conditioning.

Chivas USA plays again at 7:00 p.m. PT Saturday in Salt Lake against defending MLS Champions Real Salt Lake.  The game will be televised PRIME TICKET in English and KWHY in Spanish, as well as on the radio at W Radio 690 AM.
