Revs Eliminated from CONCACAF

The New England Revolution fell 4-0 to Joe Public F.C. on Tuesday completing a 6-1 aggregate defeat at the hands of their Trinidadian opponents.

The loss marks the first time an MLS team has been eliminated from CONCACAF competition by a Caribbean opponent and it is also the first time an MLS team has give up three or more goals to Caribbean opposition. Additionally, it was the team's worst loss at home this season through all competitions.

It was never going to be an easy night with forwards Taylor Twellman, Adam Cristman, Kenny Mansally, and Kheli Dube all unavailable. With captain Steve Ralston also available and Nicol opting to rest defenders Chris Albright and Michael Parkhurst while starting Amaechi Igwe out of position at center back, even the defense was bound to look shaky.
