At this time Cardenas appears to be more of a creative player than goal scorer, in 82 appearances he has scored just 6 goals and had 5 assists. Cardenas has played for Deportivo Pereira, Once Caldas, Deportes Tolima and America de Cali before landing with the Revolution.
Lozano started his career at Deportivo Pereira where he stayed for 7 years before moving to America de Cali in 2010. Lozano has had 37 appearances and netted 2 goals during his time with America de Cali. Lozanon was called in to a trial with Boca Juniors in 2011 but requested to be returned to his club.
These signings show a shift in the Revs FO that we have been asking for, younger internationals still in their prime, South American talent and gasp!... signing them before the season or even training camp starts. We don't know much about either player so the real test will be seeing them in action. Lozano seems like some solid help for the back line but we're not sure what Cardenas' role will be, we seem set on midfielders and he is not the prolific scorer that the team so desperately needs.
The team is certainly taking baby steps in changing the way things have been done... but they still need to learn how to run pretty soon...
