The Revolution opened preseason with a 1-1 result against Swedish champions Malmo FF at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla.

Kelyn Rowe opened the scoring in the fifth minute, putting the Revolution up after intercepting an errant back pass and firing a drive into the back of the net.

Malmo's Emil Forsberg leveled the match in the 36th minute. He had a shot hit the post, but was perfectly positioned to put the rebound in the back of the net past Bobby Shuttleworth.

Malmo's Pawel Cibicki shot off the woodwork again in the 70th minute, but nothing came from the rebound.

Revolution rookie forward Patrick Mullins had an effort parried away by Malmo goalkeeper Robin Olsen in the 86th minute.

All of the Revolution trialists saw playing time...Shuttleworth played the entire game and made three saves...Chris Tierney (foot), Saer Sene (ankle), Steve Neumann (ankle), and Charlie Davies (calf) did not play...Also not playing were Stephen McCarthy and Jose Goncalves due to " precautionary reasons after the heavy first week of training," according to the club.

“I think this is a good first step for our team… some positives, some negatives; we’re still only in the first week of training here – I think we showed good fight,” said New England goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth.

“I had a couple of saves in the first half, but tonight I think the back line did a great job of staying organized in the first preseason game, and I thought we did a pretty good job of staying in our lines and getting good pressure on the ball and made it difficult for them.”
