The New England Revolutions reached their first MLS Cup final since 2007 after holding the New York Red Bulls to a 2-2 draw in the second leg of the Eastern Conference Championship game at Foxborough on Saturday. Coming into the second leg with a 2-1 advantage, the Revs came back from a goal deficit twice in the game, with Charlie Davies scoring both goals. This game might well have been the last time the former Arsenal and Barcelona forward Thierry Henry made an appearance in the MLS, although reports of his retirement are still unconfirmed.

This will be New England Revolutions’ fifth appearance in the MLS Cup following three consecutive final appearances from 2005-07. The MLS Cup has proven to be elusive. However, following a second-place finish in the regular season and with the likes of Jermaine Jones and MVP finalist Lee Nguyen in their ranks, the Revs will be up for the challenge when they face the winners of L.A. Galaxy vs. Seattle Sounders on Dec. 7 for the MLS Cup Final.
