Danny Mwanga put in a beautiful goal early but the Union couldn't keep a clean sheet against the reigning champs. Philadelphia showed good form, as they have all year, but a key defensive mistake and a lack of finishing left 2 points on the field.
Before we go patting ourselves on the back for a good effort lets be honest: Real Salt Lake didn't play many of its star players. Philadelphia put it's best side forward. We need to do better.
It's been a busy week. Tomorrow afternoon we host Colorado at 4:00pm at PPL Park. Hopefully we can get a few players back from injury and our home field advantage starts to work more for us. Excited to see Mwanga on the pitch again.
Question for the comments:
What 4 players would you start on defense?
