He may have played his college soccer at a small Division III college, but now he has a fighting chance to make the Philadelphia Union’s roster this season.
In the latest installment of the Philly Soccer Show, Union 2014 draft pick Richie Marquez joins KYW’s Greg Orlandini and PSP’s Eli Pearlman-Storch to talk about competing for a starting spot on the Union’s defense after the departure of Jeff Parke to DC United.
Greg and Eli then look at the Union, now that they have their first scrimmage under their belt, a 1-1 draw with the New England Revolution that was played over three 30-minute periods. Each period featured a different starting lineup as the Union tries to work in all of the new faces in camp this year.
Greg and Eli also discuss some US National Team players as they gear up for this year’s World Cup.
