Meet The Opposition: The Bent Musket
Last week the Philadelphia Union faced a team whom they had never won against, the Colorado Rapids, and ended up beating them for the first time in franchise history. This week the Philadelphia Union face a team they have never lost against, the New England Revolution, and let's hope this is a streak that won't end. This year's New England Revolution squad, while still not all together good, does figure to be reasonable stronger than some New England Revolution squads of the past few years.
Philadelphia Union starting XI: (4-4-2) Zac MacMath; Raymon Gaddis, Jeff Parke, Amobi Okugo, Sheanon Williams; Brian Carroll, Michael Farfan, Keon Daniel, Danny Cruz; Sebastian Le Toux, Jack McInerney
Philadelphia Union bench: Leo Fernandes, Roger Torres, Chris Konopka, Michael Lahoud, Antoine Hoppenot, Bakary Soumare, Chris Albright
New England Revolution starting XI: (4-4-1-1) Bobby Shuttleworth; Kevin Alston, Jose Goncalves, A.J. Soares, Andrew Farrell; Kelyn Rowe, Scott Caldwell, Clyde Simmons, Lee Nguyen; Juan Carlos Toja; Jerry Bengtson
New England Revolution bench: Andy Dorman, Donald Smith, Luis Soffner, Diego Fagundez, Chad Barrett, Darrius Barnes, Chris Tierney
Prediction: This has potential to be a fun game. Union win 2-1.
