Poetry Corner Kicks: Toronto FC 0 - Union 1

Brotherly Game at related • 0 views

Whew! The Philadelphia Union dodged the proverbial bullet with their result against Toronto FC. Kleberson is the man of the hour, but there were many heroes in this story. MacMath came up large again with his 12th shutout of the year. Gaddis used his speed to track down some Toronto breakaways (which is a good thing too, because it was one of his giveaways that led to Earnshaw’s breakaway in the 87th minute).

Both goals were scored by Ronaldo, whose eight tournament goals secured him the Golden Boot and finally laid to rest the memory of his mysterious failure to turn up at the 1998 final in France.

The Good

It was hard pulling something good out of such a depressing result. In the end I decided to pick the most exciting moment of the game for Union fans. No it wasn't the finish from Fabinho, which in all honesty, was a lucky finish. It was fired hard and on frame, but really should have been a save.
