Miami’s Josef Martínez completed a right footed shot from the centre of the box to the bottom left corner, assisted by David Ruiz to make it 1-2.

Tonight’s loss snaps New England’s unbeaten run at eight games as the Revolution’s away record moves to 3-2-1 on the season.

Following tonight’s match Revolution Sporting Director and Head Coach Bruce Arena said “Think the way we started that game was disgracefulTo fall behind by a goal in the first seven minutes of the game and the way some of our guys stepped on the field to start that game was poorUltimately, it cost us the game. The goal that they called back was a good goalThat’s not interfering with the goalkeeperIt’s amazing to me that they would call that goal backI don’t know what the VAR was thinkingSecond half, we had to be a little clear technically to create some better chancesThey were very physicalobviously came after our players pretty hardThey played real hardyou can’t question thatSo, believe it’s a game we gave awayWe should not lose that game.”

Noel Buck had a goal disallowed after video review, and when asked about Buck’s attacking ability, Arena said “He’s a good player. He’s a good finisher, as is evident with the goal he scored tonight. He’s a good player. He’s got a good future.”

When asked about the team’s slow start to the game and if playing away had any impact, Arena said “Good athletes show up when they play at home or on the road. When you don’t you need to question the quality of those players. So we will have many games ahead of us and we will be challenged to make sure we have 11 players ready to play from the opening whistle.”
