Jim Curtin insists the Union are capable of a CCL comeback


Philadelphia Union head coach Jim Curtin emphasized the importance of a comeback in the second leg of the Concacaf semifinal against Club America on Wednesday, admitting the game will be an uphill battle. 

It’s the Union’s turn to host the Liga MX team after falling 2-0 at Estadio Azteca during the first leg of the series on August 12. 

Philadelphia stands as the last Major League Soccer club in the international competition after Sporting Kansas City, Orlando City and the New York Red Bulls were all eliminated by Liga MX opponents. 

“We have an uphill battle, but with our fans behind us at home, the key becomes not conceding and pushing for that first goal,” Curtin said Tuesday.

 “It’d shift the pressure to them. Our strategy is to just be ourselves at home. We know that we’re capable of scoring more than a goal at this building, we’re capable of keeping a clean sheet. That is our belief, that is our goal. You never know when you’re going to get this chance again; you have to empty the tank and give everything.”
