The Union lost 1-0 to the Vancouver Whitecaps Saturday night. It was the expansion club’s first win since the opening match of the season.
The US played terribly against Panama so it was nice to at least see them look like they had touched a ball before against Guadeloupe, obviously Ream and Agudelo didn’t start. It made sense to put in Lichaj and he showed us just why. Putting in Wondolowski is a different thing entirely. My vote for last weeks formation is what I expect to come out this week.
The bigger the challenge, the more the Independence seem to rise to the occasion lately. Against magicJack in a Women's Professional Soccer match Saturday night at Widener University, five Independence players scored to lead the home team to a 6-0 win.
This is an expanded version of my story that appears in Sunday's Inquirer. Go buy the paper, then come back here for more quotes and video highlights. VANCOUVER, B.C. - The Union made a long trip across the continent this weekend to start the first of two straight games against the worst teams in Major League Soccer.
On Veljko Paunović He’s been with us for quite some time, and we’re trying to figure out how we’re going to play in the future. Maybe he was a little too far from Seba, but he did a good job to get the ball in good spots and spread it out. I think that for the 60 minutes we prescribed for him in this game, he did pretty well. You can see that he still needs match fitness, but I think it was a good chance for him.
