By Greg Orlandini
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) –- The Philadelphia Union hits the pitch for real this Saturday, and the KYW Philly Soccer Show is here to get you ready.
KYW Newsradio’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch talk all things Union as the team heads to Portland, Ore., to start the 2014 MLS campaign against the Timbers on Saturday night.
The team is heading west carrying some injuries, including to defender Sheanon Williams and forward Conor Casey.
We also chat a bit about the new Union jerseys (top photo), unveiled earlier this week at an event at Dave & Buster’s.
And before things wrap up, philadelphiaunion.com writer Kevin Kinkead stops by to give his insight on the season opener.
