New England Soccer Today

Gameday: #NEvCHI


FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Good evening from Gillette Stadium, where the slumping Revolution (1-3-7, 10 points) will face the similarly struggling Chicago Fire (1-3-4, 7 points) in what could be the New England debut for newly-acquired Kei Kamara.

The Revolution enter Saturday’s match coming off a dreadful 4-2 loss at LA Galaxy. The Fire arrive in Foxboro fresh off a 2-1 loss to Vancouver.

What’s at stake? With the season nearing the summer months, and too many points already dropped at this point, Saturday’s match is no doubt a three points or bust affair for the Foxboro outfit. On the Chicago side of the pitch, a draw will suit the Windy City selection just fine.

Biggest question: How many minutes will Kei Kamara get? With the former Crew striker in tow, and the Revolution offense on the rocks, there’s little doubt the locals could use whatever Kamara can bring to Saturday’s match.

Weather: We’ve got overcast skies in Norfolk County ahead of kickoff, with temps in the high-70s. There’s a chance of a thunderstorm later in the evening, according to the National Weather Service.

Referees: Jorge Gonzalez will be the man in the middle for #NEvCHI. Joining Sibiga will be Matthew Nelson (AR1) and Kyle Longville (AR2). The fourth official will be Alan Kelly.
