Thirteen months after the Revolution signed him to a designated player contract, midfielder Xavier Kouassi received a starting nod in Saturday’s match at Dallas.

Kouassi, 27, suffered a torn ACL with FC Sion shortly after he signed a future deal with the Revolution. He missed the entire 2016 MLS season as he recovered from the injury before seeing a handful of minutes during the preseason.

The Ivory Coast international was available for selection at Colorado, but did not see action.

With Kouassi in the XI, midfielder Kelyn Rowe was dropped from the lineup.
