Ahead of the club's return to Subaru Park for a showdown against defending MLS Cup Champions Columbus Crew on Sunday afternoon, Philadelphia Union Head Coach Jim Curtin provided an update on the status of the squad.
“The group will at pretty much full strength but we still have the injuries to Cory Burke and Ilsinho. Unfortunately, Olivier Mbaizo lost his father so he'll be away and excused to return home for a family funeral in Cameroon. We send our condolences to him and his family. A little bit shorthanded but like we've had all year, next man up opportunity for guys to step up and do the job."
