Revs Take On WhiteCaps



New England Revolution Take On The Vancouver WhiteCaps FC Game Preview

On Saturday at 8:00 PM the New England Revolution take on Vancouver WhiteCaps FC at home in Gillette Stadium.

The game can be found locally on CSN New England and on 98.5 The Sports Hub for the radio call. If you happen to be in Canada, the game is available on TSN.

It is Juan Agudelo bobble head night as well as Noite Portuguesa at Gillette Stadium, with several activities surrounding the match to celebrate Portuguese heritage.

This is their only home match in the month of August, so the Revs are looking to capitalize it.

The Revolution are looking to bounce back after a tough loss to the Chicago Fire last Saturday. Their success at home this season has been vital to their team. The Rev’s are 7-2-2 at home this season and have not lost a match on their home turf since July 5th.

[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]”We’re going to have to definitely step up our defensive play again,” said Scott Caldwell. “It’s everyone on the field. It’s not just one mistake, but defensively, as a team, we have to be stronger together, tighter, and work on that in training and get ready for Saturday.”[/perfectpullquote]

Revolution Draw With FC Dallas In First Mobile Mini Sun Cup Match



The New England Revolution opened up the first of four Mobile Mini Sun Cup matches in Tuscon Arizona with a 2-2 draw against FC Dallas on Wednesday.

New England had a strong second half effort with both of their goals coming in the second with Cristian Penilla and Diego Fagundez helping the Revs come back twice against Dallas.

“I don’t think we all want to concede first, but sometimes it happens that way. I think you saw form the team, we all stepped it up. We got a goal back and the game changed a little bit, and we kept attacking on them and we knew the game was going our way. But then the game is just one way and [then] another, but at the end, we got it done.” Fagundez said to the media after the game.

New England’s ability to come back was nice to see, but Head Coach Brad Friedel sees a lot of chances to improve.

“FC Dallas is ahead again in fitness, which is really good for us because we’ve played a lot of teams that have been a little bit ahead. They’ve got a [CONCACAF] Champions League game just around the corner, so that was good that we got to play them. I thought other than the first 10 minutes, which were a little slow for us, I was really happy with a lot of the chances we created. Really happy with the way that we were building out of the back. There was a lot more bravery, if you like, on the ball, and the players are starting to be used to the system.”

The Revolution will play three more preseason games in the Mobile Mini Sun Cup before kicking off the regular season at the Philadelphia Union on March 3. The club will return to action in Tucson on Saturday, Feb. 17 against San Antonio FC and will then play Sporting Kansas City on Wednesday, Feb. 21, before closing out the tournament against an opponent to be determined on Saturday, Feb. 24.

Revolution Make Big Signing With Ecuadorian International Cristian Penilla



During last Friday’s MLS SuperDraft, New England soccer reporter Jonathan Sigal talked to both Revolution president Brian Bilello and head coach Brad Friedel. Both told him that the club had signed an “attacking player.” Friedel went as far to say “He’s a player the fans and players will be very happy to see involved.”

On Tuesday, the Revolution announced who that attacking player was. Ecuadorian forward Cristian Penilla officially signed on loan with the Revolution on January 23. “We believe Cristian is a player with the ability to immediately compete for a significant role in New England,” Revolution GM Michael Burns said. “His wealth of experience at a highly competitive level makes us feel Cristian will be a great asset to the club’s attack as we begin the 2018 season.”

The 26 year old Penilla has spent over 200 matches playing in the top flight leagues of Ecuador, Brazil and most notably for Monarcas Morelia and Pachuca in Mexico’s Liga MX. During that time he scored 32 goals including 13 goals and 15 assists while at Ecuadorian side Barcelona Sporting Club. Penilla made 2 appearances for the Ecuadorian National Team in October of 2014 during a trip to the United States. This included a win over El Salvador at Red Bull Arena where he scored his first international goal.

With preseason rapidly approaching it will be very interesting to see how the deep attacking core, which now includes Penilla, will look like by the first game of the 2018 season on March 3rd.
