Live updates: Philadelphia Union vs. San Jose Earthquakes

Without suspended midfielder Keon Daniel and defender Gabriel Farfan, I would not be surprised if the Union's defense has a hard time stopping the Earthquakes' midfielders from sending service to high-scoring forward Chris Wondolowski.

Live updates: Philadelphia Union vs. San Jose Earthquakes

Time: 7:00 p.m. EDT
Venue: PPL Park, Chester, Pa.
TV: Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia (J.P. Dellacamera and Bob Rigby)

Without suspended midfielder Keon Daniel and defender Gabriel Farfan, I would not be surprised if the Union's defense has a hard time stopping the Earthquakes' midfielders from sending service to high-scoring forward Chris Wondolowski.

Stopping Wondolowski will be the Union's biggest challenge tonight by far. We will see what John Hackworth, standing in for the suspended Peter Nowak, does about it.
