Current And Former Philadelphia Union Players React To Amobi Okugo's Goal

Amobi Okugo scored his first ever Major League Soccer goal and his teammates, and former teammates, were buzzing on Twitter about it.

A 2-1 win by the Philadelphia Union over the Colorado Rapids was spectacular for two reasons.

The first reason was that the Union managed to take three points back to Philadelphia despite statistically not performing well. The second reason was that the team score off of a corner kick, something that is almost a myth to the Union.

Amobi Okugo's 34th minute header beat both his marker, Marvell Wynne, and Rapids goalkeeper Matt Pickens, and gave the Union an 1-0 lead in the first half. Twitter went nuts over his first ever Major League Soccer goal, and plenty of his current, and former, teammates chimed in on the play during and after the game.
