Philly Soccer Show: Previewing Union-Earthquakes and US-Costa Rica
By Greg Orlandini
CHESTER, Pa. (CBS) –- The Philadelphia Union have a tough road match this Sunday in San Jose, and the KYW Philly Soccer Show gives you a preview.
KYW’s Greg Orlandini is joined by co-hosts Eli Pearlman-Storch of the Philly Soccer Page and Kevin Kincaid of philadelphiaunion.com as they talk with Union defender Amobi Okugo, who is still serving a two-game suspension.
The Union came off a 0-0 draw with the Montreal Impact last Saturday, a bit of an improvement after the 5-1 beating they took in New England (see game story).
Then we look at the US National team. The Yanks are on a roll, with a 12-game unbeaten run as they head back into World Cup qualifiers. They head to Costa Rica on Friday, where the country is making things a bit difficult for the US team.
The Americans weren’t provided with training balls, and had to go through immigration where they were met by a throng of Costa Rica supporters. Tuesday, they head to a much more friendly place as they take on rivals Mexico in Columbus, Ohio.
