PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — After a flurry of activity in the local soccer world last week, things are much calmer on the KYW Philly Soccer Show.

This week, KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch take a look at the Philadelphia Union as they settle into training camp in Orlando, Florida.

The team has brought in a new striker in Lionard Pajoy of Colombia (top photo), giving the team a physical, veteran presence up front.

In part two, Greg and Eli dissect the goalkeeper situation.  Zac MacMath is the number one man in net but will likely miss a chunk of time on Olympics duty.

Chase Harrison and Chris Konopka are both in camp, but neither have much MLS experience.

And finally, we take a needlessly sarcastic look at the ups and downs of the England National Team after its coach, Fadio Capello, resigned.
