Time is ticking down until the 2020 Major League Soccer schedule kicks off for the Philadelphia Union on the road at FC Dallas on February 29th. To get ready for the upcoming kickoff, MLSSoccer.com's senior host & producer Andrew Wiebe put together a list of his 10 players who need to make the most the 2020 slate.
Union homegrown midfielder Brenden Aaronson made the mark for Wiebe.
"It’s not often an American or Canadian teenager gets the keys to any professional team, let alone an Audi MLS Cup Playoffs team," Wiebe writes. "Yet it seems Aaronson is destined to get another 25-30 games as the Union’s No. 10 in 2020, depending on how much time he misses for US U-23 duties. Shout out to Ilsinho, patiently waiting on the bench to wreck people.
With the opportunity to be THE guy in the center of the Union attack, it presents the chance for Aaronson to showcase his abilities in the final third.
Say Wiebe: "It’s a huge year for Aaronson because he’s got to start doing much more of what the best attacking midfielders in the world do regularly: get his name on the score sheet. Three goals and two assists in nearly 2,000 minutes, including playoffs, isn’t going to cut it if he wants to stay higher up the field. It’s a huge season in the final third for the Philly Homegrown."
