PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The resurgent Philadelphia Union get a tough test this weekend as they head down to Houston to face the Dynamo.  The KYW Philly Soccer Show gets you ready for this Eastern Conference clash.

KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch sit down with Houston head coach Dominic Kinnear. The always straight-talking Kinnear gives his thoughts about the Union as they transition to the John Hackworth-era and discusses his own team as they sit 5th in the East.

In part two, the Union have a new face on the team, Bakary Soumaré (correct spelling). The one -time member of the MLS Best XI comes to Philadelphia after a stint in France and Germany.  At 6′ 4″ 205 lb, the native of Mali gives the team some much needed size at the back.  We also discuss the win against Sporting Kansas City and the victory over Harrisburg which propels the Union into the semi-finals of the US Open Cup.
