CARSON, California – Seven years after their last MLS Cup appearance, the New England Revolution have their swagger back.
They’ve done it with a player turned financial advisor turned head coach. They’ve done it with a one-time US soccer prodigy who was cut before ever playing an MLS game. They’ve done it with a starting striker most expected would never play the game again after a deadly car accident five years ago.
Robbie Keane is the man.
You know him for the singles "I Need a Dollar," "The Man," and for his part in Avicii's "Wake Me Up" song which was a global hit.
On Sunday you'll know him as the singer of the US national anthem at MLS Cup 2014 (3 pm ET on ESPN, UniMas, UDN, TSN1 and RDS2) between the LA Galaxy and New England Revolution.
