International Friendly

Under a nice warm July evening, at Talen Energy Stadium, we were able to enjoy the International Friendly between the Philadelphia Union and Eintracht Frankfurt. Werner Fricker posted after the game, "A sincere thanks to all who supported the Philadelphia Union last night, I was very proud of the groups who came together to entertain and celebrate our culture, music and dance!"

The Philadelphia Union went on to win the match 1-0. For full game details, click on the Game Recap button below.
