Comments from Jim Curtin, John McCarthy, Fernando Aristeguieta, and Ray Gaddis following Tuesday’s US Open Cup quarterfinal victory over NYRB.
Match reports / US Open Cup
John McCarthy was the star as Philadelphia Union played with ten men for 80 minutes and still came out on top of New York Red Bulls to book a place in the US Open Cup semifinal. They will play Chicago or Orlando City.
Toronto turned the tables on the Union, shutting down Philly’s playmakers and striking on their best move of the match.
Even without Michael Bradley, Toronto FC was untroubled by Philadelphia Union and cruised to a 2-1 victory at BMO Park Saturday afternoon.
Michael Bradley is missing, but the fourteen goals of Giovinco and Jozy Altidore mean Toronto are still plenty dangerous. The Union will be without the suspended Maurice Edu as they cross the border for a showdown at BMO Field.
Newly promoted Premier League side AFC Bournemouth dominated the Union tin a 4-1 win at PPL Park.
A collection of stellar performances were rightly overshadowed by Andrew Wenger’s first goal of the season as the Union made their dominance count against a flaccid opponent.
