March 18, 2000 – Fernando Clavijo’s first game as New England Revolution coach
Post by firstname.lastname@example.org
The New England Revolution played to a 1-1 draw with the Miami Fusion at Lockhart Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Diego Serna (61st minute) scored first, the Revolution’s Imad Baba (80th) equalizing. Clavijo would guide the Revolution to their first .500 season and first playoff victory that year, and to the 2001 U.S. Open Cup final.
Clavijo, a starting defender on the U.S. national team in the 1994 World Cup, was fired early in the 2002 season, going on to coach the Haitian national team and the Colorado Rapids. Clavijo has been FC Dallas’ technical director during a successful run that included winning the Supporters’ Shield and a victory over the Revolution in the U.S. Open Cup last year.
