The New England Revolution lost a two-goal lead on Friday night, ultimately tying D.C. United 2-2. Here are three thoughts from the game.
- Sometimes going long is the right choice. D.C. United were looking to press from the start, which made it hard for the Revs to play out of the back. In response, the visitors chose to go long. The first goal they scored began with a classic soccer play, as a short back pass led to a long aerial ball towards the striker. Juan Fernando Caicedo then flicked it to an onrushing Teal Bunbury, who held off his man and scored a goal.
