Philadelphia Union Vs. Houston Dynamo Live, MLS Cup 2011: Union Clear Ball Off The Line

What this match needs is more craziness, right? I mean, so far there's only been two goals, a tackle that should have been a red card, another that could have been a red card and some bad blood between the two teams. That's not enough though so let's add some more to it. How about the Philadelphia Union scrambling to clear a would-be Houston Dynamo goal off of the line? Yeah, now we have that too.

The Union look shockingly poor defending set pieces. They've already given up one goal on a set piece and almost gave up another as the ball was bouncing around the box and was eventually flicked towards goal. That's where it had to be headed off of the line to keep the Dynamo from scoring again.

It's only been 20 minutes, but it's already 1-1 and there's plenty going on. The packed house at PPL Park has been thoroughly entertained so far and this one is just getting going.
