Chicago Fire FC News Report

CHICAGO – Chicago Fire FC (2-5-4, 10 points) fell 1-0 to the New England Revolution (2-7-1, 7 points) on Saturday night at Soldier Field.

Chicago Fire FC II winger Omari Glasgow made his Major League Soccer debut, coming on as a substitute for Homegrown midfielder Brian Gutiérrez in the 79th minute. Glasgow signed a short-term loan deal prior to the match, before becoming the first-ever Chicago Fire FC II player to play for the First Team in MLS regular season action.

After a back-and-forth first half that ended with both teams going into the locker room scoreless, it was New England that broke through first in the 62nd minute. Striker Tomás Chancalay collected the ball and carried it to the center of the pitch, sending a shot from the arc at the top of the 18-yard box that sailed into the top left corner of the net.

NEXT MATCH: Chicago hits the road again for a Rivalry Week match against St. Louis CITY SC on Saturday, May 11. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 PM CT at CITYPARK, and the match will be broadcast worldwide on the MLS Season Pass and broadcast locally on 890 WLS-AM in English and WRTO 1200 AM in Spanish.

Midfielder Brian Gutiérrez returned to the starting lineup after coming on as a second-half substitute against Atlanta last week. Gutiérrez, the team leader so far in 2024, is just two appearances away from becoming the second homegrown player in club history to reach 100 games with the Fire.

Javier Casas Jr. (lower leg), Chase Gasper (upper leg), Maren Haile-Selassie (lower leg) and Tobias Salquist (upper leg) were unavailable for today’s game.
