Foreign pair Franco Coria and Ousmane Dabo are on their way to New England Revolution.

Both players have received their P-1 visas and will join Revs training on Monday.

Coria was spotted playing for Chacarita Juniors, while midfielder Dabo is a former Manchester City and Lazio star.

“He’s a football player, he passes and controls the ball,’’ Revs coach Steve Nicol told the Boston Globe. “Football is a simple game. If you pass it well, control it well, the other team can’t get it — end of story.

“He’s been training on his own, but when you’re in an actual game, it’s different, so I’m pretty sure he’ll have a wee bit of making up to do. At the same time, his experience will help him deal with that.’’
