PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The KYW Philly Soccer Show this week comes on the heels of an exciting match at PPL Park.

KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch are at the helm this week.

The Union, facing a 4-1 deficit at halftime, rallied to earn a 4-4 draw against the New England Revolution. The Philadelphia team was powered by two goals from Sebastian Le Toux, who has three tallies in the last two games.
