Today, KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch talk with Union midfielder Amobi Okugo.

The Union face the New York Red Bulls this evening without Okugo, who is serving a one-game suspension for a late red card in the team’s 3-3 draw against the Colorado Rapids last Saturday.

Okugo talks about how the team needs wins against the Red Bulls and the Chicago Fire (on Saturday) to stay in the hunt.

He also talks about his move back to midfield and serving occasionally as team captain.
