Kelyn Rowe is one of the key players for a resurgent New England Revolution, and now he is the guest on the latest edition of the KYW Philly Soccer Show. The young midfielder talks with KYW’s Greg Orlandini and PSP’s writer Eli Pearlman-Storch.
The Philadelphia Union are heading to Foxboro, Mass. to take on the Revs this Sunday (7:30 pm, CSN, Direct Kick, MLS Live). The Revs are just three points out of a playoff spot and five points behind the Union. Rowe talks about the role he and the other young New England players have played in the team’s improved run.
Greg and Eli then look back at the Union’s 0-0 draw against the New York Red Bulls, the first point the team has ever earned on the road against New York. The tie was a result of the tough, pragmatic style the team has developed over the season.
Anchoring the Union’s effort against New York were defenders Jeff Parke and Amobi Okugo, whose strong showing was backed up by the improving play of goalkeeper Zac MacMath.
Greg and Eli then discuss the Union’s new academy school, set to open in September. The school, the first of its kind in MLS, will have kids from grades 8-12 who play in the Union’s academy.
