Our prediction for this MLS match:
Philadelphia Union will be aiming to put an end to their five-game winless run when they take on Inter Miami on Thursday. The U’s produced a fine display against New York Red Bulls, but the Metros eventually scored the equalizer to grab something from the match. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the visit of Inter Miami.
The Herons, on the other hand, head into the match following a 2-2 draw with DC United. Phil Neville’s troops are not regarded as good travelers, and seeing that Philadelphia are desperate to return to winning ways, we believe that home win should be considered. As for the visiting side, all Aime Mabika, Brek Shea, and Ian Fray are out of contention with injuries. In their last meeting in the Major League Soccer the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
Highlighted Player (Andre Blake):
Andre Blake is a Jamaican goalkeeper who plays for MLS club Philadelphia Union. Blake was born in May Pen, Jamaica, on November 21, 1990, but he went to the UConn college in United States of America. The 193-cm-tall shoot-stopper spent three years playing college football and in 2014 he signed a professional contract with Philadelphia Union.
Andre Blake made his debut for the U in July 2014 in a friendly game against Crystal Palace and he played his first MLS match against Montreal Impact. Speaking of his international career, the goalkeeper made his Jamaica debut on March 2, 2014 in a 2-0 victory over Barbados. Later that year Andre Blake won the Caribbean Cup with the Reggae Boyz as they defeated Trinidad and Tobago on penalties in the title game.
Over the years Blake has established himself as a first-team regular and, no doubt, there is a bright future ahead of him. The Philadelphia Union shoot-stopper wears the number 18 on his shirt.
