FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Sidelined for the past two games – most recently by a hamstring injury – Lee Nguyen was back in full training on Tuesday morning as the New England Revolution prepare for Saturday night’s meeting with Orlando City SC.
Nguyen leads the Revs with 10 assists – tied for fifth in MLS – while he’s tied with both Juan Agudelo and Kei Kamara for the team lead with eight goals. Nguyen had two goals and three assists in a five-game span before missing the Revolution’s recent losses to New York City FC and D.C. United.
In five career appearances against Orlando City, Nguyen has recorded one goal and five assists.
Newcomer Krisztián Németh has also been dealing with an injury, according to head coach Jay Heaps, who said that Németh “took a little bit of a knock last week, but [is] doing a little bit better this week.”
“We want to be smart with his progression,” Heaps said of Németh, who is pushing to make his Revolution debut after arriving in Foxborough a little more than two weeks ago.
