Revolution vs. Real Salt Lake: Desert Diamond Cup 2013 Live Stream and Open Thread

The New England Revolution will be taking on their third opponent of the Desert Diamond Cup on Wednesday night. The Revs will look to build on a positive performance in their 3-1 victory over New York on Saturday.

The New England Revolution continue their 2013 Desert Diamond Cup campaign on Wednesday, facing Real Salt Lake in Tucson. The Revs' last performance was a spirited and effective 3-1 win over New York, in which they scored their first goals from the run of play this preseason.

Jay Heaps' choice of lineup is interesting on a number of levels. Lee Nguyen is starting in a withdrawn forward role, for one. Also, this marks the first time in the DDC that Heaps has put out a starting midfield that didn't feature both Cisse and Simms, who are both similar holding players. Rookie Scott Caldwell gets the start over Simms.

Later in the match, keep a look out for new training camp invitees Cameron Brown and Nermin Crnkic, who will probably see time in the second half, if at all. Both are young, left-footed midfielders who are purported to have boatloads of technical ability.

Lineups

Revolution: Bobby Shuttleworth; Kevin Alston, Jose Goncalves, Stephen McCarthy, Andrew Farrell; Donnie Smith, Scott Caldwell, Kalifa Cisse, Kelyn Rowe, Lee Nguyen; Jerry Bengtson

RSL: Josh Saunders; Rich Balchan, Aaron Maund, Carlos Salcedo, Lovel Palmer; Yordany Alvarez, Cole Grossman, Enzo Martinez, Sebastian Velasquez; Devon Sandoval, David Viana
