Lee Nguyen owns Kyle Bekker on the dribble

Here's your Monday morning pick-me-up.

Admit it, you need a Monday morning pick-me-up after the New England Revolution were trumped 3-0 by the Montreal Impact on Saturday night. Goals by Johan Venegas, Didier Drogba, and Dilly Duka were enough to hand the Revs their first loss since Jul. 11.

It was a performance that prompted head coach Jay Heaps to say, "Montreal was better than us." And while many Revs fans would like to forget about the team's trip to Canada, we have to recognize this excellent play by Lee Nguyen.

Yes, that's the Revolution's own Nguyen putting on a dribbling clinic against Kyle Bekker. The highlight doesn't change the final result, but it is a nice showcase of Nguyen's skill.

Keep in mind that the midfielder has been named to the USA's 35-man provisional roster ahead of the CONCACAF Cup game. While it's unlikely that Nguyen makes Jurgen Klinsmann's final list, you have to admit that you'd love to see the Revolution star pulling this move against Mexico.
