But head coach Paul Mariner said he will take into consideration the circumstances before he makes a final decision about what would be Kocic’s first game since Aug. 18.

24 Under 24: Union

WAYNE, Pa. – To say the Philadelphia Union are young would be a serious understatement.

Let’s take a look:

• There are 16 players on their roster younger than age 24 – the most of any team in MLS – and key starters Michael and Gabriel Farfan only recently turned 24.

• Their average age is 23.57.

• Their No. 1 striker (Jack McInerney) is 20, their starting goalkeeper (Zac MacMath) is 21, and their longest-tenured defensive starter (Sheanon Williams) is 22.

MONTREAL – Zarek Valentin's only crime was getting injured, really. And while he was out, three Serie A veterans all took places in the Montreal Impact's backline at the same time.

It would be perfectly normal for the 21-year-old defender let pessimism get the better of him. Yet Valentin is keeping his spirits up.

CARSON, Calif. – When Jorge Vergara assumed full ownership of Chivas USA last month, the move was just the latest in a string of transactions that have left the club without much solid footing over the last three years.

Perhaps that is a reason behind the team’s recent struggles.
