Goat Report from Boston

By Chivas USA Communications

Chivas USA arrived Monday evening in Beantown and held a light practice Tuesday morning in preparation for its Wednesday 5 pm PT match against New England Revolution. The Rojiblancos’ got a taste of the Boston humidity at Soldiers Field Park on the campus of Harvard University.   

The Goats look to continue their solid road performance, as they have lost just twice on the road (4-2-4) this season. For recently-acquired midfielder Shalrie Joseph, the match will be his first appearance against the Revs since being traded from New England on Aug. 1. Joseph played nine seasons with the Revs and was an integral part of their multiple appearances in MLS Cup.

“It feels good coming back,” said Joseph. “Definitely a little bit teary-eyed, but come tomorrow night, I just have to get out there and make sure I perform, make sure the team gets the win and just be ready for the moment.”

Going into the match, Chivas USA has defeated Joseph’s former team five straight times and holds an edge in the all-time head-to-head series (7-5-2).
