Outlook: New England- The Revs should be very happy for taking three points out of a must-win game. They are in prime position to take control of the fifth and final playoff spot next week against Houston...San Jose: The Quakes are ragged and rundown and will need their regular starters back ASAP.
FINAL REVOLUTION 2, SAN JOSE 0
78th minute- GOAL REVOLUTION! Nguyen drives the ball across the box and Imbongo slides the pass into the back of the net for his second goal of the season. 2-0 Revs.
68th minute- Chad Barrett off for Dimitry Imbongo. Barrett showed that he can contribute to the attack when he starts, but unfortunately for him he had no goals to show for his efforts.
54th minute- San Jose just have so many players back in their own end of the field. 1-0 Revs.
47th minute- Lee Nguyen sees an effort go just wide of the near post. 1-0 Revs.
46th minute- And we're off! 1-0 Revs.
Halftime: REVOLUTION 1, SAN JOSE 0
45th minute- Revolution have been in full command all half long. They thoroughly deserve to be winning this game. Still, they may regret having not scored a second goal in the first half. 1-0 Revs.
34th minute- Farrell finishes off a give-and-go with Rowe and sees his effort saved by Busch. 1-0 Revs.
28th minute- Caldwell plays Barrett into the area. Barrett chips and narrowly misses the far post. 1-0 Revs.
26th minute- All New England so far. 1-0 Revs.
13th minute- GOAL REVOLUTION! Saer Sene cuts to the right side of the penalty are and right foots a shot that Busch knocks away. The Revolution reclaim possession and get the ball back to Sene, who left-foots a blazer from 25 yards out past Busch and into the net. 1-0 Revolution.
12th minute- Alan Gordon pulls the trigger from just outside the penalty area and curls a shot just wide of the far post. 0-0.
9th minute- Both teams trying to establish control of the midfield in the early goings here. 0-0.
2nd minute- Sene goes in over the top, but has a weak effort saved by Jon Busch. 0-0.
1st minute- And we're off!

Google Translate is not perfect -- we're aware of that -- but it is quite good at getting the main points of the story across. We've successfully used it on The Big Picture, Boston.com's extremely popular world photography site. I'd be eager to hear your feedback on its use in Corner Kicks, in whatever language.
