HOW SWEET IT IS TO #DOOP in Costa Rica
REPLACE THAT CONCACAF GRAPHIC WITH OLIVIER MBAIZO NOW (and take off whatever center back decided a giant Polish striker isn’t worth defending. #DOOP https://t.co/Ln6lxEfjwG
Ernst again looking like a f’n genius again with the Flach purchase. #doop
It's officially #DOOP season!
What a goal to kickoff their #SCCL campaign.
WE ARE SO FUCKING BACK BABY LETS GOOOOOOOO #DOOP
Great first half from the @PhilaUnion
in the @TheChampions
matchup. A 1-0 lead on the road is HUGE. Need to build on it in the second half so we have room to breathe at Subaru Park next week. #DOOP #CCLFever
Just on cloud 9 after that half. How did no team poach Curtin in the offseason? He could coach the US senior team today. #DOOP
How do you think the second half will play out? 5 substitutions allowed and a lot of defensive players on the bench.
Do you think the U keep their foot on the gas or go defensive to preserve a 1-0 victory.
Final score prediction?
and when he needs to be there. Was interested to see how he played out with his frame but he’s providing physicality defensively which i think the union lacked sometimes last year in the midfield. Let’s keep this going and party at Subaru Park next week! 😁 #DOOP
WHAT A FIRST HALF!!! #DOOP FOR KACPER #SEXBALL FROM MBAIZO AND A GREAT FIRST HALF FOR FLACH IN HIS BLUE AND GOLD DEBUT. no more all caps lol but we look comfortable, coordinated, and strong. this is what i love to see. after only being here for 7 days flach knows where to be 1/2
The youngins are giving it and Martinez is already in everyone's head. LFGGGGG
Awesome half! I expect us to get at least one more goal in the second half! #doop
HT: Saprissa 0-1 Union! The U played a complete half and dominated. Kacper’s goal has the Union in the lead and gives them the crucial away goal
Plus you got my dad’s clap of approval
Good first 45’ for #DOOP. Martinez, as little as he is, fills all the gaps in the midfield. He orchestrates the counter press and always reads the next pass leading to interceptions. The right side with Mbaizo/Bedoya has been dangerous. Monteiro is an underrated 10 in this league
First player ratings of the season for @phillysoccerpg
falls to me: Who's your man of the match so far? #DOOP
El Brujo is a bastard and I love it. Dude is everywhere on the pitch, even in the opponents' heads. #DOOP
Halftime score from Costa Rica is the #Union 1 Deportivo Saprissa 0.
The Boys in blue looked hot at the start of the match then let Saprissa get a few good opportunities, but Kacper Przybylko is the difference maker in this one with a goal in the 34’.
HT: Union 1 - Saprissa 0. Kacper Przybylko with the Union’s first-ever goal in the Concacaf Champions League. Union have also done well defensively to not really allow good chances from Saprissa. #CCL #DOOP
Need to lock in for the final minutes of the first half here #DOOP
Great 1st half @PhilaUnion
now let’s finish the job! #DOOP #SCCL2021
