Union’s Firey Start Extinguished In Second Half: Chicago Fire 3-2 Philadelphia Union

Brotherly Game at related • 0 views

To put it mildly, the Philadelphia Union have not had much success on the road in 2017. And despite the Union taking a first half lead into the locker room, the Union conceded twice in the 2nd half to walk away from Toyota Park 3-2 losers and victims of a Nemanja Nikolic hat trick.

The Chicago Fire got things started in the 3rd minute with a brilliant counterattacking goal.

A much different start by the Philadelphia Union tonight against Columbus Crew SC, as they go into the locker room up 1-0.

As was the case with their first two games of the Gold Cup, the US was somewhat underwhelming in their 3-0 win over Nicaragua on Saturday, if only because it could have and should have been more than three. Dom Dwyer and Joe Corona both missed penalties but thanks to a late Matt Miazga goal, the US was able to secure top spot in the group and avoid a more difficult quarter-final matchup.
