There was a new face at training on Tuesday morning, as defender Gale Agbossoumonde took to the field for the first time following his move from Toronto FC toward the end of last week. The 22-year-old, wearing the number 44, arrived in Colorado as part of a deal which took Marvin Chávez to Chivas USA and Luke Moore north of the border to Toronto.

Agbossoumonde arrives as the Rapids prepare for the first meeting with neighbors and rivals Real Salt Lake this Saturday, kick-off 7.30 p.m MT. Coverage of the first Rocky Mountain Cup fixture of 2014 can be seen on Altitude TV, from 7 p.m, with Richard Fleming and Marcelo Balboa.
