Philly Soccer Show: Union Defender Sheanon Williams
By Greg Orlandini
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) –- Just as a playoff berth was slipping out of reach, the Philadelphia Union gets its biggest win of the season, a tough 1-0 result at Sporting KC, to put them back in the hunt.
This week the KYW Philly Soccer Show features Union defender Sheanon Williams to talk about the playoff push.
KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch sit down with Williams, who, along with goalkeeper Zac MacMath, had a standout performance against Sporting.
Williams talks about the remaining four regular-season games for the Union, which include two very winnable games with Toronto FC coming to PPL Park this weekend and the Union heading DC next weekend.
Greg and Eli then look at some of the issues dogging the Union right now.
Despite the win, the goal against Sporting KC was only the second by the team in six games. The offense has been sputtering since mid-August, with striker Jack McInerney not seeing the back of the net since late June.
But one bright note was Michael Farfan, who has been struggling through an up-and-down season. He put in one of his best performances against KC.
But now, the Union will need all hands on deck if they hope to make the post-season.
