The New England Revolution will host Chicago Fire in the Eastern Conference U.S. Open Cup semi-final on August 9 at the Gillette Stadium.

In the second Semifinal, LA Galaxy will host FC Dallas the following Wednesday, Aug. 10 at their StubHub Center Stadium.

Kei Kamara’s Revolution advanced to the U.S. Open Cup semi-finals for the first time since 2008. The Revs are now unbeaten in their last three games in all competitions.

They beat Philadelphia Union 4-2 on penalties following a 1 all draw in regular time at the Harvard University’s Jordan Field on Wednesday night.

Kei Kamara was dangerous throughout the second half; he was a late addition to the Revolution starting squad.

Kei Kamara replaced Femi Hollinger-Janzen who suffered an injury in pre-game warm-ups.

Statistics proves Kamara was the most outstanding – he led the Revolution with seven shots, impacting the game with his energy up front.

Meanwhile, the Sierra Leone-born is no stranger to this competition. He was part of the Sporting Kansas City celebrations after defeating Seattle Sounders FC to win the US Open Cup Final at Livestrong Sporting Park on August 8, 2012.

The Revolution prolific striker has scored three goals in this campaign for the Revs in nine appearances.

His first two league goals were against Montreal Impact in the opening 35 minutes on July 2, 2016, in the ongoing season.
