I'm still smarting a bit after yesterday's loss. For once, the Revolution played a pretty good game away from home, holding the possession advantage and limiting the home side's offensive forays, but couldn't keep enough mistakes out of the game to hang on for a results.

Today's Rounds feature recaps from last night, a look in at what troubles soccer in Egypt, and some news from around the league.

Here is the official match recap of last night's loss to San Jose.

More after the jump.

Steve Nicol and others commented that two mistakes cost the Revs points when they didn't deserve to lose the match.

Here are postgame quotes from the Revs and the Quakes.

In a move that may give Revs fans hope of keeping Shalrie Joseph this summer, FC Dallas' Marvin Chavez has declined a call-up from Honduras for the Gold Cup. He has chosen instead to stick with Dallas and help them through their injury crisis.

Benny Feilhaber spoke with Alex Labidou of Goal USA to discuss his move to MLS. As it turns out, his chances of making the Gold Cup roster were not a driving factor in his decision.

James Dorsey reports that the Egyptian Interior Ministry has threatened to cancel league soccer if fan violence continues. The entire Middle East is awash with ghastly soccer hooligan violence right now, but Egypt appears to be the epicenter.
