FOXBOROUGH — The Revolution have hired a succession of coaches who were former defenders or goalkeepers. But the team’s defensive reputation has been tarnished this season, as it entered Saturday night’s game against D.C. United with the worst goals-against mark in the league.
After a 1-1 tie with United, the Revolution seem to be regaining their defensive mojo.
The Revolution (3-8-4, 13 points) rallied after goalkeeper Matt Turner was red-carded early in the second half at Gillette Stadium. The Revolution opened the scoring on Juan Agudelo’s third goal of the season, then surrendered a late penalty kick to Wayne Rooney, snapping a 180-minute shutout streak.
