CHESTER, Pa.— Trinidad & Tobogan Keon Daniel set up the lone goal of the match in the Philadelphia Union’s 1-0 victory over the New Engand Revolution in a match between teams out of the Major League Soccer playoff picture on Saturday.
Daniel played a free kick from the near side, almost from the corner flag. He curled the ball into the area and Jack McInerney got behind Revolution goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth to head the ball home in the 73rd minute at PPL Park.
The win boosted the Union to 10-15-6, while New England fell to 7-17-8.
Daniel’s performance received praise from Philly coach John Hackworth, who felt the T&T native had his best performance for the club.
“Keon is a fantastic player,” Hackworth told PhiladelphiaUnion.com. “He’s always been a fantastic player. But Keon, I think has shown in the last two games, is everyone in the locker room, everybody on that coaching staff, feels that way. Two consecutive games, he’s contributed in every possible way. He’s a class soccer player. I’ve watched him in the CONCACAF qualifying for Trinidad and he was easily the best player on the field in so many games I’ve watched. I’m happy for him that he’s doing it for us as well.”
