Description

As the campaign rolls into the summer months, when title challenges in MLS soccer are either validated or discredited, the Philadelphia Union now find themselves top of the Eastern Conference following Saturday’s 1-1 draw on the road in Commerce City against the Colorado Rapids. Of course, after such a comprehensive reconstruction over the off-season Philadelphia were always likely to be better this year than last. The signing of Chris Pontius has proved a particularly shrewd one, with CJ Sapong filling in as a somewhat improvised, yet effective, frontman. Saturday’s match was illustrative of how coach Jim Curtin hasn’t just changed the team on the field but the mentality of the entire club. There’s now a toughness to this group that isn’t usually synonymous with the Union, and that’s why they are something different this season. https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2016/may/30/mls-philadelphia-union-new-york-red-bulls-mls-results http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
