Revs draw 3-3 after taking 3-0 lead over Chivas USA

FOXBORO -- The New England Revolution's winless skid continued on Wednesday night. Their 3-3 draw to Chivas USA marked the Revs' ninth-straight match without a win.
This one is extra painful though.
Not just because former Revolution captain Shalrie Joseph scored two goals against his former team at Gillette Stadium, but because New England blew a 3-0 lead.
The Revs scored three goals in the first 22 minutes, but Chivas USA got a pair of goals from Joseph before the end of the first half, cutting New England's lead to 3-2.
Not even three minutes into the second half, Chivas USA tied the game at 3-3 on a Miller Bolanos tap-in from out front.
The last time the Revs won a game was on July 8. They are 0-7-2 during their nine game winless skid.

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.
