CHESTER, Pa. (CBS) –- The Philadelphia Union heads to Vancouver to take on the high-flying Whitecaps this Saturday, and the KYW Philly Soccer Show gets you ready for it.  KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch sit down with Whitecaps’ coach Martin Rennie.

This Scotland native is in his second season with the Canadian team and has them fourth in the West so far.  He talks about his rise through the coaching ranks from the lower leagues to the MLS.

Rennie also discusses the contribution that former Union players, defender Jordan Harvey and goalkeeper Brad Knighton, are making to the ‘Caps.

We then talk about the US National Team as they get set to face off against Panama this Sunday in the CONCACAF Gold Cup final.  The USA has dominated this tournament, flexing their offensive muscles led by a resurgent Landon Donovan.
