Live updates: Philadelphia Union at D.C. United


Time: 5:08 p.m. EDT
Venue: Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium, Washington, D.C.
TV: ESPN2 (Adrian Healey, Taylor Twellman and Alexi Lalas) and ESPN Deportes at 5:00 p.m.

As was the case last weekend, this game is there for the taking for the Union. Against Toronto, the Union didn't take it. D.C. United is really struggling this year, and currently sits in last place in the East. A road win would put a very nice shine on the Union's quietly-growing reputation as a contender for a playoff spot.
