Union hold RSL to 1-1 draw



With each side missing a key player due to international duty, the Philadelphia Union and Real Salt Lake played to a 1-1 draw at PPL Park Wednesday night.

Danny Mwanga and Fabian Espindola exchanged goals in the first 17 minutes as Philadelphia coped without forward Alejandro Moreno (Venezuela) and Salt Lake was without leading scorer Alvaro Saborio (Costa Rica).

Jason Kreis' lineup appeared to be one more likely to be found in a U.S. Open Cup match, as he rested keeper Nick Rimando, midfielder Kyle Beckerman and defender Robbie Russell and brought U.S. forward Robbie Findley off the bench midway through the second half in anticipation of Saturday's match against Columbus at Rio Tinto Stadium.

Here are highlights from the match:

What did you think of the match? Hoping to see Mwanga in a U.S. jersey someday soon? Who do you think takes the RSL-Crew match this weekend?
