Revolution’s Rally Falls Short, Lose to Philadelphia 3-2
Sunday, August 12, 2018
“I think one of the things we needed to do as an entire staff, is create a different culture that was at the club, which we’ve been doing from the moment that we’ve come in and we’ve made a lot of strides in doing so. And I think people, when they come watch us, they see an exciting team. They see a team on the front foot, a team that can create a lot of chances. Do we have to get better at our conceding of goals? Yeah, and at one stage, we were starting to move in the right direction. LA Galaxy game, three really poor goals out of nowhere. But, this group, I think a lot of the guys that have been here have been used to that over the years. Well, that’s not something that we accept. So, you have to stop it. That’s why I was harping that it’s so important never to lose two games in a row. Losing becomes a habit and that’s something that we have to get out of,” said Revolution head coach Brad Friedel after the game.
The loss drops the Revolution to 7-8-8 on the season, while Philadelphia improves to 9-11-3 overall.
Revolution’s Rally Falls Short
The Revs trailed 2-0 at the half before Andrew Farrell got them on the board in the 46th minute to cut the Union’s lead to 2-1.
New England would tie the game in the 64th minute when Wilfried Zahibo found the back of the net to tie the game.
The goal was Zahibo’s fourth of the season.
However, New England couldn’t keep the momentum going as Philadelphia’s Fafa Picault scored in the 76th minute to give the Union a 3-2 lead and the win.
The Revolution return to action on Sunday, August 19 when they visit D.C. United.
Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
