SPORTING KANSAS CITY vs PHILADELPHIA UNION LIVESTRONG SPORTING PARK, Kansas City, Kan. 7:30 p.m. CT (FOX Soccer/Deportes) September 23, 2011 (WEEK 28; MLS Game 266) A massive game in the Eastern Conference is ahead on FOX Soccer Night in America when Sporting Kansas City play host to Philadelphia Union at Livestrong Sporting Park. The clubs are separated by just a single point in the standings, KC a point behind East leaders Columbus Crew, followed by Philadelphia, in a tie with Houston. Sporting are coming off their first road game in more than two months, a 1-0 loss at Real Salt Lake, while Union put an end to an eight-game winless run with a 1-0 win against Columbus at home.

Sporting have 40 points from 29 matches on the season, in second place in the Eastern Conference. LAST MATCH  The game's lone goal came in the 54th minute, when Kyle Beckerman lofted a free kick into the penalty kick and center back Nat Borchers flicked it into the back of the net.  Sporting manager Peter Vermes made three changes to the team that rolled to a 3-0 win against the Houston Dynamo at Livestrong Sporting Park. Michael Harrington came in for Chance Myers, and Aurelien Collin and Kei Kamara also returned to the team, in place of Jeferson and Kei Kamara.

MLS GAME INFORMATION


SPORTING KANSAS CITY (4-2-3-1): Jimmy Nielsen - Michael Harrington, Aurelien Collin, Matt Besler, Seth Sinovic - Julio Cesar (Jeferson 86), Roger Espinoza (Davy Arnaud 81) - Kei Kamara, Graham Zusi, Omar Bravo (C.J. Sapong 69) - Teal Bunbury. TEAM NEWS  The loss was just the third in MLS play since late May – and all three have come against Western Conference clubs currently holding playoff places: Seattle (Aug. 6), Dallas (Aug. 27) and Real Salt Lake.  “Especially in the first half, they couldn’t string passes together,” SKC manager Peter Vermes said. “Our guys were closing down the lanes and spaces. When we won it, we moved the ball from side to side, switching the point of attack and getting after them.”  It was, of course, the first road game for Sporting since a July 16 trip to Houston, a 1-1 draw. Sporting went 52-2 on their MLS-record nine-game homestand.  “I thought we did a very good job of coming out after a long homestand, not missing a beat and putting a lot of pressure on them for the better part of the game,” said midfielder Graham Zusi.  Sporting were also shut out offensively for the first time since June 22, scoring a goal in 14 consecutive matches. It was the seventh attacking shutout of the season – SKC lost each of the first three by 1-0 scorelines, before playing to three consecutive 0-0 draws.  “We were very good in the run of play. I walk away thinking we played very well tonight and could have walked away with something more than zero points,” Vermes said.  The Union game starts a two-game home stretch for Sporting; three of their final five games will be at Livestrong Sporting Park.  “Obviously the home games were great for us with the atmosphere, but we have to play these games away against good opponents when it comes time for the playoffs,” said Teal Bunbury.  The Union game also starts a pair of games against the teams immediately around Sporting in the Eastern Conference table, a point ahead of Philadelphia for second place and a point behind Columbus in first.  “We’ve played very well for a long time now,” Vermes said. “I thought we played well again tonight. We’re not going to change a bunch of things. We’re a good team, and we have the ability to play with anyone in this league. We need to do that in these last five games of the season.” PHILADELPHIA UNION Philadelphia Union put an end to their winless run at eight games, defeating the Columbus Crew 1-0 on Saturday evening at PPL Park. Union have 39 points from 28 matches on the year, in third place in the Eastern Conference. LAST MATCH  The game's only goal came in the 32th minute. Sebastien Le Toux broke free to run onto a brilliant long ball from Roger Torres and beat Crew goalkeeper William Hesmer with a clinical finish from inside the area.  Union manager Peter Nowak made two changes to the team that played to a scoreless draw with the Portland Timbers at PPL Park. Gabriel Farfan and Zach Pfeffer came into the side in place of Danny Mwanga and Veljko Paunovic.  PHILADELPHIA UNION (4-2-3-1): Zac MacMath - Sheanon Williams, Carlos Valdes, Danny Califf, Gabriel Farfan - Brian Carroll, Michael Farfan - Roger Torres (Morgan Langley 80), Freddy Adu (Amobi Okugo 75), Zach Pfeffer (Danny Mwanga 63) - Sebastien Le Toux. TEAM NEWS  The win put an end to an eight-game winless streak for Union, their first victory since defeating New England 30 on July 17. They went 0-3-5 in that stretch, the longest winless skid in the two-year club history.  “It was a tough two months without a win,” said Union manager Peter Nowak. “I think we broke the curse. We’ve been waiting a long time for this.”  Added Union center back Danny Califf: “Certainly we’ve played well enough to win in the course of eight weeks. We felt a bit snakebitten for a while, and to finally get that win – in probably one of the biggest games of club history – is a big relief.”  Union rookie goalkeeper Zac MacMath has now recorded shutouts in back-to-back games, after allowing four goals in his first professional start, Sept. 7 vs. New England. He was in goal for a victory for the first time against Columbus, after backstopping the scoreless draw vs. Portland.  Nowak ran out a team against Columbus that featured seven players 23 years of age or younger.  "Someday you have to start this way. We told every guy he deserves the opportunity. The idea was in my head a long time ago to play differently," Nowak said. "I think you could see in practice that these guys were pushing very hard, and they deserved the shot.”  Playing as a lone striker in Nowak’s scheme, Sebastien Le Toux scored his sixth goal in the last six games. Philadelphia has scored nine goals in that time.  “I like to play with two, usually with Danny [Mwanga] like last year, because we have some good movement together,” Le Toux said. “Playing up top alone was a bit different, but I like it because we have lots of good

midfield players between Roger, Freddy, Zach, Brian, and Michael. We do a great job defensively first, then we play quickly first time, taking the space. Nowak gave 16-year-old Zach Pfeffer his first professional start, on the left side of midfield. “I think he was nervous as soon as he saw his name on board. He sensed that he might start a game and during the practice he was very good. He was doing good with the first team. The (63) minutes he played was a good start,” Nowak said. Recently signed 22-year old Morgan Langley also made his league debut, coming in as a second-half substitute along with 20-year-olds Amobi Okugo and Danny Mwanga. “Even though it was a big game, they didn’t play nervous or afraid,” said Califf. “I think that also has to do with Peter’s mentality, putting those guys in, giving them a vote of confidence and saying, ‘Look, I believe in you. I think you guys have it in you and I want to give you a chance to show yourselves on a big stage.’”

WHEN LAST THEY MET... Sporting Kansas City held Philadelphia to a scoreless draw in the two teams’ previous meeting in 2011 on June 22nd at PPL Park. The Union, in first place in the Eastern Conference at the time, outshot Sporting KC 26-8, but Kansas City goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen made seven saves for the club’s fourth shutout in their past five matches. Sporting Kansas City was without Graham Zusi, Aurelien Collin and Roger Espinoza for the draw, but remained unbeaten in the three all-time meetings with Philadelphia, holding a 1-0-2 record.

KANSAS CITY CONNECTIONS • Sporting Kansas City defender Shavar Thomas was acquired by Kansas City from Philadelphia on June 30, 2010.

Thomas has appeared in 19 games since his return. - Sporting Kansas City Manager Peter Vermes played high school soccer in Delran, New Jersey, approximately 15 miles from Philadelphia. After playing professionally in Hungary, Holland and Spain, Vermes was drafted by the New York/New Jersey MetroStars in the inaugural draft of Major League Soccer in 1996. - Philadelphia Union head of scouting and player development Diego Gutierrez began his MLS career in Kansas City from 19961997, before returning for a second stint from 2002-2005.

SPORTING KANSAS CITY HEADLINES PLAYOFF PREVIEW? | Sporting Kansas City and the Philadelphia Union are separated by a single point in the Eastern Conference standings entering their match on Friday night at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park. If the standings remain the same, with Sporting KC currently in second place and the Philadelphia Union occupying the third spot in the East, the two teams would meet in a home-andhome Eastern Conference semifinal. Sporting Kansas City sits one point back of the Columbus Crew for first place in the Eastern Conference with five games remaining in the 2011 MLS regular season. The club’s climb up the table came courtesy of a 14-game unbeaten run that stretched from May to August. The unbeaten streak matched the longest run in MLS this season and equalled the 3rd longest in MLS history. 05/28/2011 06/04/2011 06/09/2011 06/12/2011 06/17/2011 06/22/2011 06/25/2011 07/02/2011 07/06/2011 07/09/2011 07/16/2011 07/23/2011 07/30/2011 08/03/2011

Philadelphia Union vs. Sporting Kansas City – Friday, September 23, 2011 – 8:30 p.m. ET BACK ON TRACK Philadelphia proved this past Saturday that the team is set to make a push for the playoffs. Peter Nowak fielded a young, attacking team against Columbus Crew and they were able to come away with a 1-0 victory and three crucial points. Sporting Kansas City were unable to take advantage of Philadelphia’s Saturday night win. The team lost 1-0 to Real Salt Lake and was unable to take control of the Eastern Conference. The top of the East now has three teams separated by one point. Philadelphia sit in third place with 39 points but have a game in hand on both Sporting Kansas City and Columbus Crew.

LAST MATCH VS. SPORTING KANSAS CITY The last time these two teams met, a 0-0 tie saw Philadelphia Union move into a first-place tie with New York Red Bulls in the Eastern Conference. The tie left Sporting Kansas City at the opposite end of the table, sitting in last place with a 3-6-5 overall record. Philadelphia looked strong in the first half, registering four shots on goal a few of which demanded impressive saves from Kansas City goalkeeper, Jimmy Nielson. Philadelphia’s best opportunity came in the 72ndminute when Sebastien Le Toux’s cross found Carlos Ruis whose header beat Nielson, but found the woodwork. The Union ended the game with seven shots on target to Sporting Kansas City’s one, but were unable to find the back of the net. Scoring Summary: None Sporting KC -- Jimmy Nielsen, Chance Myers, Julio Cesar, Matt Besler, Seth Sinovic, Kei Kamara, Luke Sassano, Davy Arnaud, Birahim Diop (Stephane Auvray 72), Omar Bravo (Michael Harrington 63), Teal Bunbury (C.J. Sapong 46). Substitutes Not Used: Korede Aiyegbusi, Milos Stojcev, Shavar Thomas, Eric Kronberg.

Misconduct Summary: KC -- Julio Cesar (caution; Reckless Tackle) 28 PHI -- Veljiko Paunovic (caution; Simulation) 31 KC -- Jimmy Nielsen (caution; Delaying a Restart) 92+

LAST MLS MATCH This past Saturday, Philadelphia Union recorded their first franchise victory against Columbus Crew. Peter Nowak fielded an attacking lineup, dominated by youth. Midfielder Zach Pfeffer made his first MLS start and held his own at only 16 years of age. The 1-0 victory gave Union 39 points, only two behind Division leader Columbus. The Union attacked well for the majority of the first half, and in the 32nd-minute Roger Torres found space at midfield and played a brilliant ball over the top to a streaking Le Toux who calmly slotted it past goalkeeper William Hesmer. Toward the end of the first half, Zac Pfeffer almost finished a series of nice buildup play which would have completed a fairy tale debut for the youngster. His shot in the end was easily handled by Hesmer, though. The second half saw Philadelphia pack it in and defend, which they did well. Amobi Okugo came on for Freddy Adu to bolster the Union defense in the 75th-minute and Morgan Langley, just signed from Harrisburg City Islanders, subbed in for Roger Torres to make his MLS debut. Scoring Summary: PHI -- Sebastien Le Toux 7 (Roger Torres 1) 32 Columbus Crew -- William Hesmer, Sebastian Miranda, Julius James, Shaun Francis, Eric Gehrig, Dilly Duka, Danny O'Rourke, Dejan Rusmir (Josh Gardner 83), Robbie Rogers, Tommy Heinemann (Justin Meram 62), Andres Mendoza (Jeff Cunningham 74). Substitutes Not Used: Cole Grossman, Aaron Horton, Josh Williams, Chris Konupka. Philadelphia Union -- Zac MacMath, Sheanon Williams, Carlos Valdes, Danny Califf, Gabriel Farfan, Zach Pfeffer (Danny Mwanga 62), Freddy Adu (Amobi Okugo 75), Brian Carroll, Roger Torres (Morgan Langley 80), Sebastien Le Toux, Michael Farfan. Substitutes Not Used: Jack McInerney, Stefani Miglioranzi, Kyle Nakazawa, Thorne Holder. Misconduct Summary: CLB -- Dejan Rusmir (caution; Handball) 12


Philadelphia Union vs. Sporting Kansas City – Friday, September 23, 2011 – 8:30 p.m. ET

PETER NOWAK VS. SPORTING KANSAS CITY Peter Nowak has enjoyed some success against Sporting Kansas City. Although he has yet to beat Sporting Kansas city as Union manager, Nowak has posted a 6-3-4 record against Kansas City over his coaching career in Major League Soccer. When Nowak’s team has scored the first goal, they are 6-0-2.

IN STRIKING DISTANCE Philadelphia Union’s win on Saturday against Columbus Crew has tightened the race for the Eastern Conference and has left Philadelphia in a great place going into Friday’s game. Philadelphia’s 39 points leave them two behind Columbus (41) and one behind Sporting Kansas City (40). Both of these teams have 29 games played to Philadelphia’s 28. A win on Friday will push Philadelphia atop the Eastern Conference. A tie for Philadelphia will leave Union in third place, narrowing the gap between the first and third to just one point. Columbus is set to play LA Galaxy at home on Saturday night.

SPORTING KANSAS CITY ACQUAINTANCES Sporting Kansas City and Philadelphia Union have players whose college careers have intersected in the past. Kansas City’s Graham Zusi attended University of Maryland from 2005-2008. During his time there, he played with Thorne Holder (2007) and Zac MacMath (2008-2010). None of the three, however, were Terrapins when Danny Califf attended the university years before in 1998-2000. Before beginning his professional soccer career, Sporting’s Chance Myers attended UCLA from 2006-2007. During his time in California, Chance played with Kyle Nakazawa (2006-10) but left to join Ventura County Fusion before Amobi Okugo arrived in 2009. Although Michael Farfan and Sporting Kansas City’s Michael Harrington share similar paths on their road to professional soccer, they have never crossed as teammates. Michael Harrington attended the IMG Soccer Academy from 2001-2003 and left in 2003 to play for University of North Carolina. Michael Farfan also attended IMG Soccer Academy, but began in 2004. He also attended UNC (2009-2010) but never played with Harrington whose tenure as a Tar Heel lasted from 2003-2006.

UNION VS. SPORTING KC BY THE NUMBERS EASTERN GOAL DIFFERENCE Philadelphia and Kansas City share the best goal differential in the Eastern Conference. Philadelphia have 36 goals for with 30 against, while Sporting Kansas City have 43 for and 37 goals against. Both teams have amassed a positive six goal difference.

YOUTH INFLUENCE Philadelphia Union’s lineup this past Saturday averaged 23.55 years of age. It featured seven players 23 or younger including 16-year-old Zach Pfeffer who made his first Major League Soccer start. Morgan Langley, 22, debuted for Philadelphia, playing ten minutes as a sub for Roger Torres. The young team was able to snap the Union’s longest winless streak in franchise history – eight games – against one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference.


Philadelphia Union vs. Sporting Kansas City – Friday, September 23, 2011 – 8:30 p.m. ET PLAYOFF TIE-BREAKERS If teams are equal in points at the end of the season, the following tie-breakers will be evaluated to determine who is awarded the higher position. 1. Head-to-head competition (better win/loss record in current regular season games) 2. Goal differential (Goals For – Goals Against) 3. Total Goals this season 4. Road 1-3. (1. Did the team in question beat the other team on the road? 2. Does the team have a higher goal difference on the road? 3. Did the team score more goals away from home?) 5. Home 1-3 6. Team with the fewest team disciplinary points in the League Fair Play table. 7. If the teams remain tied, a coin will be flipped.

CLOSE AT THE TOP As the regular season winds down, the fight for the playoffs in the Eastern Conference is heating up. Only two points separate #1 Columbus Crew (40) from #4 Houston Dynamo (39). Philadelphia Union (39) sit at #3. This past Saturday saw New York Red take back the fifth spot from D.C. United. United are still in a strong position. The team has 34 points and at least two games in hand on each of the five teams in front of them. If the postseason were to start today, Philadelphia would finish in third place in the Eastern Conference. They would play the Eastern Conference’s second place team, Sporting Kansas City, in a two-legged, aggregate series. The first game would be at PPL Park on October 30. The second game would be at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park on November 3.

SEBASTIEN LE TOUX FORM In the past six games, Sebastien Le Toux has netted six times for Philadelphia Union. The forward’s run of form comes at the perfect time in the season, with vital games coming up against teams in the hunt for the Eastern Conference playoff spots. The French forward leads Philadelphia in goals (7) and assists (8). Le Toux has also started, and played the full 90 minutes in each of Philadelphia’s games this year, logging 2,520 minutes.

DIEGO GUTIERREZ RETUNRS TO A FAMILIAR FIELD Philadelphia Union’s Head of Scouting and Player Development could offer some insight into what to expect when the Union travel to Kansas City this Friday. The Colombian defender recorded 134 appearances for Kansas City Wizards during his playing career in Major League Soccer. At the game on Friday Gutierrez will join his wife, a Kansas City native, and a group of 100 family members/friends to watch the clash between two of the Eastern Conference’s best teams.

SHAVAR THOMAS Sporting Kansas City’s Shavar Thomas has a history with Philadelphia Union. The Jamaican defender was selected by Philadelphia in the 2009 MLS Expansion Draft, but was traded to Kansas City in exchange for two MLS SuperDraft picks and allocation money. The defender was featured once in the Philadelphia lineup, playing 35 minutes. He has had a limited role for Kansas City this year, playing in three games for a total of only 35 minutes.

PLAYOFF DATES Major League Soccer announced the official MLS Cup 2011 playoff dates on August 9. Wild Card games will take place on October 26-27; Conference Semifinal first and second legs will run from October 29-30 and November 2-3, respectively. Conference Championships will be played on November 5-6 with MLS crowning a 2011 champion at the Home Depot Center on November 20. There is a gap between the Conference Championship matches and the MLS Cup Final because FIFA has reserved November 11th and 15th for international fixtures.
