NE REVOLUTION—2—CHICAGO FIRE—0

GRANDE GOLO DE DIEGO FAFUNDEZ

O Revolution voltou as vitórias após seis jogos sem ganhar, quatro empates duas derrotas, e foi uma resultado justo, mas a verdade e que o Revolution defrontou uma das mais fracas equipas do MLS.

Jay Heaps could not have scripted the outcome of Saturday's game much better than the way in which it unfolded.

Aside from that dodgy sequence around the 26th minute, the Revolution pretty much hit upon everything they hadn't done over the course of the last six games.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – A pair of strikes in quick succession shortly after halftime allowed the New England Revolution to snap their six-game winless streak in Saturday's 2-0 victory over the Chicago Fire in front 15,775 at Gillette Stadium.

After struggling to impose their will in the first half against a depleted Fire selection, the Revolution broke through in the 48th minute when Diego Fagundez volleyed a rocket from the top of the box past Jon Busch.

The Last Word on D.C. United 1-0 Chicago Fire: Squad Management Is a Thing

In which we hopefully tell people to pump the brakes that top players can avoid a start and we can still field a team that does things.

D.C. United came off a win over the New England Revolution in the grueling heat and ahead of a game against a generally surging Toronto FC (?) squad, facing a Chicago Fire squad missing their top players, the challenge for Ben Olsen was to pick a squad that could not be a full bore starting one, but one strong enough to take at least one and hopefully all three points.

Possibly the most difficult stretch of D.C. United's season continues tonight with a road game against the struggling Chicago Fire. It's the second of five games in under two weeks for United, and on paper at least it looks like the least demanding of them.

Even playing on limited rest against a Fire team that had an off week, hopefully an old like Chris Rolfe can return home with a bit of a chip on his shoulder still against the team from Bridgeview and make things less than optimal for the home squad.

To have players ready for Saturday, which is against Toronto FC, Ben Olsen is going to have to rotate his squad; it will all be a part of an intricate dance that he will have to play until United have a bye week on July 11 to hopefully recover back into playing condition.

After news broke on Friday that Jermaine Jones had to undergo his second sports hernia surgery in four months, it's pretty safe to assume that he won't be getting the three-year extension that he's reportedly seeking. And that, in many respects, is a shame.

After conceding the opening goal for the first time in nine games last week in Portland, the Revolution hope to beat the Chicago Fire to the board and make that lead last on Saturday at Gillette Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7:30pm.

The Revolution, who enter Saturday's contest winless in their last six, will be looking to put last week's 2-0 loss to the Timbers behind them and not just because of the scoreline.
