Thoughts on the match
"We came back twice which is good to see. It's been a tough stretch for us. We played some real good stuff in the first half, and to go down a goal and get one back is good. Then I think we gave up a pretty silly goal, but we fought back hard to get back in the game. All credit to the guys. I think we scored in the 87th, 88th minute so their effort was fantastic tonight."
Thoughts on the goals
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Houston midfielder Luiz Camargo scored his first MLS goal in the 87th minute to lift the Dynamo a 2-2 draw with New England at Gillette Stadium.
Camargo's deft one-two with Brian Ching and his tidy finish salvaged a point. It looked like Saër Sène's double either side of a Will Bruin header would give the Revs all three points, but the Brazilian's late intervention ensured each team walked away a share of the spoils.
