Philly Soccer Show: Union, Licking Wounds, Hope For Better Against Montreal
By Greg Orlandini
CHESTER, Pa. (CBS) –- The Philadelphia Union try to shake off a tough loss as they get ready for the dangerous Montreal Impact at PPL Park this Saturday.
To get you ready for it, the KYW Philly Soccer Show talks with Union goalkeeper Zac MacMath.
KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch examine the 5-1 beating the Union took against New England last week (see game story). MacMath talks about how the team is trying to move on from that game, and the adjustments they have made.
MacMath also talks about how tough it will be without one of the team’s best defenders, Amobi Okugo, who will miss the next two games due to suspension.
Then, Eli and Greg go over the Union’s remaining schedule, gauging their chances of making the playoffs.
The Union have two tough games over the next two weeks, with Montreal bringing the league’s leading scorer, Marco Di Vaio, to town on Saturday. And then a long trip out to San José next week.
