Did you miss the fun today of everyone trying to cobble together what was happening in this match through following Minnesota United FC's and New England Revolution's Twitter accounts? Fear not, I've aggregated the good times for you.
In this first preseason match down in Casa Grande, Ariz. where both teams are training, the Loons drew 1-1 with the Revs, thanks to a 39th minute goal from trialist midfielder Eugene Starikov and a late equalizer from Revs' forward Kei Kamara.
Here was United's starting lineup and the formation I think the Loons' used: Goalkeeper John Alvbage; defenders Justin Davis, Jermaine Taylor, Joe Greenspan, and Kevin Venegas; holding midfielders Mo Saeid and Collen Warner; midfielder Ish Jome, Ibson and Raul Gonzalez; forward Abu Danladi. The Revs' lineup is below:
In the 13th minute, the Revs' Brian Wright went down in the box, leaving Teal Bunbury to take the penalty. But new keeper Alvbage proved his worth and saved it.
Danladi had a few good chances, but United made a complete team substitution about 30 minutes into the match. I think this is how the players lined up: goalkeeper Patrick McClain; defenders Thomas de Villardi, Brent Kallman, Vadim Demidov and Duke LaCroix; holding midfielders Collin Martin and Eugene Starikov; midfielders Lance Laing, Tanner Thompson and Miguel Ibarra; forward Christian Ramirez.
Starikov scored in the 39th minute off a header after the post denied Ramirez.
At halftime, the Revs redid their lineup:
#NERevs 2nd-half lineup: Cropper; D. Smith, Sabaly, J. Smith, Turner; Herivaux, Appiah, Nguyen, Rowe, Kamara, Bowen— NewEnglandRevolution (@NERevolution) January 31, 2017
Kamara equalized for the Revs in the 78th minute, heading in a Donnie Smith cross from the left wing.
After creeping on the grainy postgame Periscope from the Revs, I think I saw Femi Hollinger-Janzen wearing 88, de Villardi wearing 13, Ramirez wearing 21, Warner wearing 26 and Danladi wearing 9.
There should be some video highlights coming from United soon. I'll update when that is up. The Revs tweeted some photos, if that can tide you over.
And that's what you missed on Glee.
