Five goals scored. One against. Two big wins.
The Philadelphia Union continued their resurgence this past week by picking up a pair of victories that has brought them within striking distance of other teams in the Eastern Conference. The Union first grabbed a surprise 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Galaxy at the Home Depot Center on Independence Day before thoroughly beating Toronto FC, 3-0, at PPL Park on Sunday.
Those two wins saw the Union claim SBI's MLS Team of the Week award ahead of the Seattle Sounders and the New England Revolution, and should serve as a big boost in confidence for a team that appears ready to try and get into the playoff picture.
What do you think of the Union winning SBI's MLS Team of the Week award? Should it have been the Sounders or Revolution instead? Do you see the Union continuing this upward trend?
