A wise man once said, "with great goals comes greater goal celebrations." Here are tonight's celebrations from Diego Fagundez (firing muskets) and Charlie Davies (showing off his dancing skills). Which one was your favorite?
Nicholas Mendola from NBC Sports ProSoccer Talk chatted with Jermaine Jones recently on his acclimation to the team.
Jones tells Mendola, “It’s starting to really become my home. Step by step, everything is going good.”
Jermaine Jones joined SiriusXM FC's Counter Attack on Thursday afternoon to discuss his move to MLS with the Revolution, his time with the USMNT this summer in Brazil and how MLS can bring more overseas talent to play in America. Have a listen below.
Lee Nguyen celebrates his first goal of the night in style with a little somersault against Sporting KC. Keep it rollin', Lee!
Charlie Davies opened up to the Improper Bostonian in a lengthy interview this week. The interview is chock full of tid bits on Charlie’s days with the USMNT and with the Revolution, so here’s five that will whet your appetite:
- He’s a big fan of the beach
- He was a wrestler in his youth
- He once bowled a 240
- He’s a fan of Ray Donovan and Homeland
- He enjoys Thai Massages (i.e. having a massage therapist walk on his back)
