He’s one of the hottest players in Major League Soccer right now, and he plays for the Philadelphia Union.
Fernandes, who was named PSP’s player of the week twice so far, as well as making the Sports Illustrated “Team of the Week” two weeks in a row, talks about the hard work he put in during the off-season to be ready for this year. He also talks about the strong on-field relationship he has shown with teammate Sebastien Le Toux, each assisting on the other’s first goal of the 2014 season.
Greg and Eli also talk about the tough loss the Union suffered last week against Columbus. The Union was the strong team for stretches in that match, but two goals from Bernardo Añor, including a 35-yard blast, proved the difference in the 2-1 defeat.
The Union’s next opponent is the Montreal Impact, who visit PPL Park this Saturday.
