PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – He’s made history and he hasn’t even stepped on the field yet. Philadelphia Union goalkeeper Andre Blake is the guest on the KYW Philly Soccer Show.

This week, KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Eli Pearlman-Storch talk with Blake, who earlier this month became the first goalkeeper ever to be taken first overall in the MLS SuperDraft.

We talk about his experience on draft day, and competing with fellow goalkeeper Zac MacMath for the starting job.

__________

Then Greg and Eli review some the team’s recent signings.

The Union have had a busy off season, with three major acquisitions — midfielders Cristian Maidana, Maurice Edu and Vincent Nogueira, the last two coming this week.

We discuss where these three players will fit and how this affects other players on the squad.
