Revolution waives midfielder Augustine

The New England Revolution announced that they have parted ways with Nigerian midfielder Michael Augustine, waived by the team today.

Signed on March 4 from Nigeria's FCT Abuja, the 18-year-old never played a game for the Revs this season but played in three games with the reserve team and two games in the U.S. Open Cup qualifying matches.

The Revs (3-6-4, 13 pts.) are currently in sixth place in the Eastern Conference, but just three points away from third place. The Philadelphia Union lead the Conference with 21 points (6-3-3).

They travel to New York on Thursday to face the Red Bulls for a nationally televised game on Friday, June 10 at 8 p.m., still looking for their first win on the road.

Los Angeles (6-10-4) has lost five in a row and has just one win in its last eight games.
