The Premiere of Philadelphia Union

 The Philadelphia Union

 Well, you couldn’t expect much more than what we saw tonight..

 

The newest addition to the MLS – The Philadelphia Union played against the Seattle Sounders. For all of us soccer fans in the Philadelphia region, we’ve been looking foward to the start of our new franchise for quite some time now.

The Union suffered a lot of penalties, and we had a man sent off in the first half. We have a young team, it will take some time to get a groove and chemistry between the players. Don’t count us out yet as a serious MLS Club! (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)

One player that grabbed my attention and the announcers talked about him as well was Roger Torres (click the link for a great article on him by Simon Borg).  Torres had great ball handling and although the Union lacked much possession, he played a good game.

All in all, I’m excited to have a club. First game of the season loss (0-2) to Seattle, but it was nice to see Philly represent.
