FOXBORO -- It's officially been two full months since the New England Revolution have won a game, thanks to Sunday night's 3-0 loss to the Philadelphia Union at Gillette Stadium.

Carlos Ruiz scored in the 12th minute, Carlos Valdes added another in the 24th, and Sheanon Williams scored in the 93rd minute to give Philadelphia all it needed on this night.

Not having won since May 14, frustration set in for the Revolution on the field in the second half, as Benny Feilhaber was ejected for picking up his second yellow card of the game. Feilhaber was then involved in a pushing match with Ruiz at midfield, which sent the Revs' midfielder off the field with some heated words for his opponents.

Revolution acquire defender Benjamin Angoua

The New England Revolution have acquired defender Benjamin Angoua on loan from EA Guingamp for the 2017 MLS season with the option to transfer permanently following the season. Angoua will be added to the Revolution roster upon the receipt of his International Transfer Certificate and P-1 Visa.
 
“With Benjamin’s experience, adding him to the Revolution was an important step for our club this offseason,” Revolution GM Michael Burns said. “We began this offseason with the goal of bringing in veteran players who are ready to contribute right away, so we are very pleased to have Benjamin with us as we head to preseason training in Arizona.”
 
Angoua, 30, has made a combined 309 appearances across all competitions in France, Hungary, and the Ivory Coast, recording five goals and two assists from the backline. He joins the Revolution after more than two seasons with EA Guingamp (2014-17) and previously played for FC Valenciennes (2010-14), both in France’s top-flight Ligue 1. An experienced defender, Angoua has registered 152 appearances, including 138 starts, in Ligue 1 competition since 2010.
 
The 6-foot, 160-pound Ivorian international also played with Budapest Honvéd (2006-10) in Hungary’s OTP Bank Liga, and Africa Sports (2004-06) in the Ivory Coast Ligue 1. Angoua has additional experience competing in the UEFA Europa League with both Guingamp and Budapest Honvéd.
 
At the international level, the Anyama native has recorded 17 caps and registered one goal for the Ivory Coast national team.
