KYW Philly Soccer Show: Keon Daniel

Two games and two losses for the Philadelphia Union. The Philly Soccer Show is there as the Union struggles out of the gate.

In part one, co-hosts Greg Orlandini of KYW Newsradio and PSP’s Eli Pearlman-Storch are joined by midfielder Keon Daniel. The Trinidad and Tobago international talks about playing with all the new faces on the team and the adjustments the Union are going through. He also talks about the visa issue that prevented him from returning to the team last season after a call up to the Trinidad and Tobago national team.

In part two, we look at the Union’s home opener, a loss to the always-tough Colorado Rapids. The team was improved after their disastrous loss at Portland to open the season, but still came up short. The game feature loads of scoring chances for the home side, but yielded only one goal, with the Union falling, 2-1.

In part three, there is no rest for the Union as they face two tough teams. The Chicago Fire is unbeaten to open the year, and is a much improved team over last season. After that, the freewheeling Vancouver Whitecaps come into town, with a familiar face on the roster.
