Photo essay: Philadelphia Union 1-2 Inter Miami

The last time Philadelphia Union played at Subaru Park vs Inter Miami, the result was much different — even if there were some similarities with battles on the field and words being exchanged by players, José Andres Martínez and the Higuaín brothers. With the return of Cory Burke and Ilsinho, the spark Union fans had hoped for did not ignite. The game was frustrating for both players and fans and ended with a disappointing loss at home for the season home opener.
