Philadelphia 1-0 Everton: Match Report

Union to host Everton1 300x147 Philadelphia 1 0 Everton: Match Report

from phillysoccerpage.net

Everton FC opened their 2011 American Tour by squaring off against Major League Soccer’s Philadelphia Union on Wednesday night. The match featured a number of the first team Toffees playing a full 90 minutes in a sweltering bowl of heat and humidity, including captain Phil Neville, Phil Jagielka, Leighton Baines, John Heitinga (only cut short by a second yellow), and Seamus Coleman, who was stationed at right back for the first half. It was a great tuneup in adverse conditions, even though the home squad picked up a late goal from youngster Christian Hernandez to seize the victory, 1-0.

    Not a good start for the Blues but, let’s face it, pre-season doesn’t mean much of anything. That being said though, if they still have trouble moving the ball and creating chances in the final third for the rest of the trip, I’ll start to get worried.

    We still need a winger and a striker before we start the season. Obviously we need to sell in order to buy those players but time is starting to run out and the supporters are howling for action. Literally howling, they’re like a pack of wild animals, ready to rip out the innards of the board members. It’s a little sad.

    As a life-long Liverpool supporter now also supporting Philly as I live in the area, DOOP!

      Yes, supporting a team that is currently #1 is much better than supporting a mid-table team. I salute you.

        Get out of here with that. I live 20 minutes from the stadium and have had a season ticket before the team even took the field for the first time.
