Philly Soccer Show: Union Face Two Tough Road Games
By Greg Orlandini
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia Union have two tough road matches ahead of them and the KYW Philly Soccer Show previews the action. KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch are joined by Philly.com’s Jonathan Tannenwald.
The Union are coming off a disappointing 2-2 draw against FC Dallas last Saturday where they took the lead in the 87th minute only to see it slip away to a late, controversial goal. Some blame was placed on goalkeeper Zac MacMath for the late goal, and with the addition of veteran keeper Oka Nikolov, the pressure could be on the young netminder.
We look ahead to the two tough road matches, Wednesday against Real Salt Lake and then Saturday at Houston.
We also discuss another new addition to the Union, fullback Fabio Alves. The Brazilian, who last played in the A-League of Australia, has been brought in to likely bolster the team’s left side.
