FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – A comprehensive 4-1 win over Orlando City SC – a result that stretched the New England Revolution’s unbeaten run to 11 games (7-0-4), matching the club record – wasn’t enough to fully satisfy sporting director and head coach Bruce Arena or his players on Saturday night.
“I don’t think it was a 4-1 game,” Arena said. “I think it was closer than that.”
Arena, who expressed a similar sentiment following last weekend’s 2-0 win in Cincinnati, felt the Revs were too sloppy in their defensive half of the field, and didn’t capitalize on a series of quality chances in the first half that could’ve extended their lead beyond 1-0, courtesy of another Gustavo Bou goal.
