The World Cup break may be over, but the goals have still not arrived for MLS sides as Real Salt Lake and the San Jose Earthquakes played to a scoreless draw on Friday night.

Jon Busch got his first shut out for the Earthquakes, but the real story was the play of his opposite number, Nick Rimando. The Real Salt Lake Goalkeeper came up big time and time again to preserve the point for the defending champions.  San Jose came closest to getting a victory on the road in the seventh minute when Chris Wondolowski was alone against the goalkeeper forcing Rimando to make a diving save. 

The defending champions were under a great deal of pressure from the Earthquakes but RSL had a golden chance to come away with all the points at home. In the 59th minute, off a pinpoint cross from forward Alvaro Sabario, Fabian Espindola was unable to convert in front of an empty net.

Here are the highlights:
