Philadelphia will be the center of the American soccer world tonight as Jurgen Klinsmann makes his debut as coach of the U.S. national team against regional rival Mexico (9PM/ESPN2). I don’t think I am going out on a limb here by stating this will be the most heavily scrutinized friendly in the history of U.S. Soccer. It’s a perfect storm of soccer storylines, and it will all come to head this evening at Lincoln Financial Field.

It was just a friendly. Neither side fielded their full complement of players. The Union are in midseason form, while Everton are touring the US in pre-season mode. All appropriate disclaimers acknowledged, it still felt good to see the Philadelphia Union beat Everton FC at PPL Park last night. The final score read 1-0, but the Union controlled most of the game, and had a few golden opportunities narrowly miss on a night when pristine finishing eluded them. Their younger players had a chance to play hard against an esteemed English side, and they played their asses off.

To prepare myself a bit for Saturday night’s showdown at the Linc between the Philadelphia Union and Real Madrid, I actually watched all 90 minutes of a soccer game between two teams I have no connection to. What have I become?

The Union are set to take on Everton of the English Premier League later tonight at PPL Park, followed by Real Madrid at Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday. That’s quite a week of meaningless footie right there, and I’m really looking forward to it.
Here’s a quick compilation of Union extras that are floating around this week.

The Union ended their long road swing with a 3-0 throttling of a struggling New England Revolution club at Gillette Stadium. The U came out firing and controlled the run of play throughout the first half, beginning with some attacking waves that would earn them a lead they’d hold throughout.

Yes, it’s women’s soccer, but any sports fan can appreciate the absolutely remarkable victory this group of American ladies pulled off on Sunday after being crushed by both the referees and the Brazilians on Sunday. And plus, if there ever was a day were you could fit in something different into your sports viewing schedule, it’s the day after the MLB All-Star game.

The Philadelphia Union earned a much needed road point as they went into RFK Stadium and tied D.C. United 2-2. Carlos Ruiz scored the equalizer in the 84th minute.

Down 1-0 to visiting Chivas USA and approaching 300 minutes without a goal, the Union finally gave the PPL Park faithful something to Doop about. The team dominated the inferior Sporting KC side on Wednesday but failed to score in a 0-0 draw. On Saturday night we got pretty much the exact opposite.
A near last-place Western team, Chivas came to play on Saturday, giving the Union some real competition and even a bit of a fright, once leading and once leveling the match. But the U found their scoring touch, with Veljko Paunovic notching his first MLS goal to level it at 1, and Carlos Ruiz punching home a beautiful go-ahead finish. Chivas would tie it at 2 on a goal by the giant, Justin Braun, whom Rev warned us about in his preview. But the Union finally went ahead for good on a gorgeous Danny Mwanga strike in the 82nd minute.

I’d imagine when you’re accustomed to regularly playing weekend games a mid-week match can disrupt your typical routine. Similarly, flying cross country, playing a game three time zones away, flying back across the country, and playing another match less than four days later has to really mess with you.
Those are the circumstances the Union face tonight as they host Sporting Kansas City at PPL Park (7:30PM/The Comcast Network). The U, who lost 1-0 to Vancouver on Saturday night, now must regroup as they look to extend their seven game home unbeaten streak.

Not a great night for the Philadelphia Union in Vancouver, but the lone goal by Whitecaps FC was well worth a watch.
