Last season Lee Nguyen stood out as one of the top players in MLS. But he didn’t get off to a strong start in 2015 and many pundits wondered aloud if his 2014 was an aberration.That talk has quieted down. Nguyen has been fantastic since June, registering four goals and seven assists as he helped.
Against Toronto on Sunday, Nguyen was what separated the Revolution from its Canadian opponent. First, he assisted on the Revolution’s second goal to make it 2-0. Then, with the score 2-1, he stripped Michael Bradley in a dangerous position to gift Kelyn Rowe a golden scoring chance that doubled New England’s lead.
