Salomon Scores A Hatrick Against The Union

The Philadelphia Union traveled to Mexico for the second round of the CONCACAF championship last week. It was a draw 0-0 facing Pachuca, and then the Union had a rainout this past Saturday in a regular MLS season game. However, it was a 1-0 for the bulk of this game. Salomon Rondon would score the penalty kick. Then he would get himself open and go top shelf to use hockey terms on the Union’s goalkeeper, Andre Blake. Salomon Rondon would beat the one on one coverage and scores a hat trick for Pachuca he was on fire, he was bringing offensive pressure to Philly’s door step.


It Continues To Get Ugly For Philly

When it rains, it pours, and Pachuca didn’t take their foot off the gas pedal. Not one time, Nelson Deossa would lace one out from a distance. Andre Blake would attempt to stop the ball; however, the soccer ball would deflect off of Andre Blake’s hands, and the ball would go into the net. Salomon Rondon would make a quick pass to Erick Sanchez. Oussama Idrissi, with a little bit of space, fires one in for a goal. Pachuca, getting creative in the offensive zone, Alan Bautista puts the nail in the coffin. Pachuca would take this game, winning 6-0 and putting a touchdown on the Union.

How Do The Union Respond From Here?

One must be thinking, what will Jim Curtain (The Philadelphia Union’s head coach) do from here? How will this Union team respond to this beatdown? Did fatigue play a significant role in this game? A lot of questions surround Philly right now. Watching Pachuca completely outplay the Union on both sides is tough for Union fans to take in. The Union won’t have much rest as they continue on the road and get ready for Austin FC. We shall see what Jim Curtain does. To try to steal a win in Texas.
