Immediate Reaction: Union Beat DC United 3-2 In A "WOW" Game

New, 6 comments

The Philadelphia Union jumped out to an early 2-0 lead on the back on Sebastien Le Toux's two first half goals. The Frenchman put the team on his back - a reference to a Youtube video about Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings - for the first 15 minutes of the match, then proceeded to be dangerous for the rest of the game.

Michael Farfan showed off the skills and playing ability that led him to two NCAA All-American awards during his time at the University of North Carolina (UNC). Playing from mostly a right midfield or right central attacking midfield role, Farfan's play had fans tweeting the Brotherly Game that he was Man of the Match during the game, despite Le Toux's brace.

The defense was suspect at some moments, but came up big when needed at the end of the game, preventing a Dwayne De Rosario-less DC United from taking a point away. Zac MacMath was confident, but inexperienced and sometimes 'weak' in net. The future number one goalkeeper needs to put on some muscle and improve his positioning, the latter being a strong point of Faryd Mondragon's game.
