Gregg Berhalter is executing a masterclass in managing expectations downwards as the World Cup approaches. But that doesn’t mean all is lost
Daniel Gazdag scored his team-leading 18th goal of the season, Mikael Uhre added his 11th and the Philadelphia Union took the lead in the MLS Supporters’ Shield race with a 2-0 victory at the New York Red Bulls on Saturday night. Jack McGlynn and Julian Carranza provided the assists for the Union (17-4-9, 60 points), who defeated a Red Bulls side that finished with 10 men after an ugly incident where frustrated New York defender Dru Yearwood kicked the ball into the stands and hit a home fan. Western Conference leaders LAFC are three points behind Philadelphia but have two matches in hand in the race for the Shield, which earns the winner a berth in next year’s Concacaf Champions League.
Following their CONCACAF Women's Championship win over Canada, Alex Morgan followed in Steph Curry's footsteps and said "night night."
