[YOUTH]The New England Revolution, which will field U-16 and U-18 teams in U.S. Soccer's Development Academy in the 2008-09, has hired Portugal native Mario Prata as its new Director of Youth Development.

Prata, whose playing career included five seasons with Portuguese power Benfica and who represented Portugal at the national youth team level, joins the Revolution from the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association.
