FOXBORO, Mass.- The New England Revolution drew their home opener with the Vancouver Whitecaps, 0-0, on Saturday afternoon at Gillette Stadium before 13,103.

Jose Goncalves returned to the starting lineup after being left off the traveling squad for last weekend's loss at Philadelphia. Goncalves wore the captain's armband on Saturday and helped the Revolution preserve their first shutout and points of the young season.

Vancouver controlled most of the first half possession, though the Revolution created more chances. Andy Dorman flicked a corner kick by Chris Tierney at goal that Whitecaps goalkeeper David Ousted had to tip over the bar in the 5th minute. Kelyn Rowe then shot inches wide of the far post in the 19th minute after making a 15-yard run with the ball.

The addition of Pedro Morales and Kekutah Manneh for the Whitecaps in the second half stretched the field to give the visitors a greater share of the attack. But Bobby Shuttleworth only had to make one save in the second half to earn his first clean sheet of the year.

The Revolution are unbeaten in home openers since 2006.
