By Greg Orlandini
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A familiar face heads to PPL Park this Saturday, as the Philadelphia Union’s all-time leading scorer comes to town.
Sebastein Le Toux is the guest on this week’s KYW Philly Soccer Show. The Vancouver Whitecaps forward talks candidly about his time in, and departure from, Philadelphia. He also talks about what it’s like playing for the Western Conference-leading Whitecaps.

The Union are three games into the season and without a win or a point. The team struggled to generate much offense against the speedy Chicago Fire (see game story), and will face the freewheeling, Le Toux-led Whitecaps this Saturday.

Next, we turn to the US Men’s Olympic team, which has failed to qualify for this summer’s games in London.

In part three, we ask what the future holds for Porter, who is also the head coach at the University of Akron.
