Revs forced into high press, gave up too much space, says Delamea

FOXBOROUGH — Not shy about being critical about his own squad mates or taking ownership of his own mistakes in a match, Revolution center back Antonio Delamea is always honest in his assessments.

And following the 2-0 loss to Columbus in the home opener Saturday, the Slovenian didn’t mince words when asked for his take; after all, he had a good view on the left side of the alignment, and thanks to his hard work found himself poised to make several Crew attacks fizzle out.

Delamea recorded six takeaways — three in each half — to keep the Black and Yellow at bay, including in the second half when Columbus wanted a second goal.

“I feel like now when I’m thinking about the game, we didn’t do a good job being on the ball and (were) defending all the time,” Delamea said.
