The Philadelphia Union are one of the Eastern Conference's early season surprise contenders, and a lot of that comes down to the goal scoring exploits of Jack McInerney. The 20-year old forward leads Major League Soccer with seven goals from just 10 games played, winning the league's Player of the Month award for April in the process. McInerney has played to such a level in 2013 that he is beginning to draw early comparisons to Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez.
MLSsoccer.com's Samantha Yarock caught up with McInerney and teammate Amobi Okugo at a recent post-training visit, and picked up some pointers on how to replicate McInerney's recent scoring ventures inside the penalty area.
And don't worry about Jack; he recovered from Samantha's rocket shot to the chest just fine, by scoring the only goal of the game in the Union's 1-0 victory at Chicago this weekend.
