On a day that saw the Revolution announce the transfer of Argentine striker Gustavo Bou to the team, the good times keep rolling in New England.

Justin Rennicks is one of twenty-two MLS academy prospects named to the squad that will play against the Chivas de Guadalajara U-20s the night before the MLS All-Star game in Orlando at the end of the month.

This will be the fith annual Homegrown Game, and the MLS side will be looking to capture their first victory, after losing and drawing twice in the first four exhibitions. The Chivas side is coming off of a win of the 2019 Liga MX Clausura U-20 title, but have not yet released their roster for the match up.

Rennicks will be reunited with a familiar face while in Orlando, as the Homegrown team will be coached by Orlando City SC Academy Director Marcelo Neveleff, who was with the New England Revolution from 2018-19 before leaving in May.
