New England's CONCACAF Cup result

If you are planning on watching the Fox Soccer Channel broadcast of the New England - Liga Deportiva Alajuelense match, don't read much further.

Anyway, New England faced off in Costa Rica tonight against Liga Deportiva Alajuelense. The first half, they were in complete control. It looked as if they would make much happen far away from home. Yet, they could not find goal.

The second half was much tougher. Calls were not going the Revs way and they didn't seem to be able to hold the ball as much. Still, they had moments of possibilities, yet they could not find net. Then in the 90th minute, Alajuelense got a free kick right outside the Revs box.

Carlos Hernandez stepped up to take it and wow, what a curve he put on the shot. Right past the wall and out of the reach of a diving Matt Reis. The stadium erupts as they see their home side take the goal that will send the Americans home with nothing.

And that is how New England ended their CONCACAF run. If they had showed this kind of flash two weeks ago in the 'home' match, they might have been the ones celebrating tonight.

New England 0 - 1 Liga Deportiva Alajuelense
