David Beckham isn't coming to New Orleans, but international professional soccer is. The New England Revolution of Major League Soccer will play two exhibition matches in Louisiana. On Sunday, the Revolution face Honduran powerhouse Olimpia from Tegucigalpa. The Olimpia Lions have twice won the CONCACAF (Caribbean, North and Central American region) club championship and have collected the most league titles in Honduras. The Revolution is one of Major League Soccer's founding teams and features many top American players. As it prepares for its April season opener, the Revolution play Olimpia and then travel to Baton Rouge to face the Shell Shockers (pictured) on Wednesday.
