New Eng. Revolution

Their most recent results shine a light on the fact that much respect should be given to the New Eng. Revolution backline. Revs have been miserly, resulting in the number of goals that have gone in at their end over the course of their previous 6 games standing at 3. Such a trend isn’t assured to be carried forward into this next game, of course.
