The New England Revolution are still playing, even with the World Cup on. Tonight at 7 PM they kick off their U.S. Open Cup campaign against USL Pro side Richmond Kickers, a difficult opponent currently occupying second place in the lower division, two spots ahead of the Revs' affiliate, the Rochester Rhinos.
For more info, take a look at our preview with Ben Bromley.
Head coach Jay Heaps has shuffled the lineup sufficiently in an effort to get a few guys more minutes and a few other guys some rest time. Knighton, McCarthy, Smith, and Caldwell are getting run out tonight, and rookie Steve Neumann is making his first competitive start for the Revs.
