FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Forget the fact that the Revs’ first-ever Designated Player Milton Caraglio made his debut Saturday night. In fact, you can even forget that the Revs lost 3-2 to Chivas USA. The stage belonged to 16-year-old Diego Fagundez, who not only became the first Revs Homegrown Player to make his MLS debut, but also scored a brilliant goal 20 minutes into the game. “We had planned to play him at some stage today,” Revolution manager Steve Nicol said. “It was a no-brainer to bring him on. He did a fantastic job.” -ESPN Boston
Not only is Diego Fagundez 16 and getting more tail than Boston Jam CEO Moose has at the age of 34, but he is a local from Leominster, which makes him cool in my book. I’m not a huge fan of soccer unless it is Italian soccer because I am a true Ital, but anytime there is a reason to cheer for the New England Revolution, I’m down. The Revs are simply terrible with a 4-10-9 record, so at least this is something to get all 37 fans excited. Go Diego, go!
