Walter Zenga, the former Internazionale and Italy goalkeeper, is to play in America's nationwide professional league, Major League Soccer, with New England Revolution.

The 37-year-old, currently with Padova, said yesterday that he had agreed a two-year contract with the Boston club.

Zenga will be joining up with another former Padova player, the American international defender Alexi Lalas. "I'm looking forward to a new experience," Zenga said.

Zenga spent 13 seasons with the Milan team before transferring to Sampdoria in 1994. He joined Padova in Serie B last year. One of the most experienced Italian goalkeepers, he won 58 caps with the national team.

Zenga has been preceded in America by other Italian veterans such as Roberto Donadoni and Giuseppe Galderisi.
