Marco Fabian on the ball vs. Montreal in preseason

Mexican international Marco Fabian made his Philadelphia Union debut, playing the opening 45 minutes of a 1-0 loss to the Montreal Impact at Al Lang Stadium Saturday afternoon as part of 2019 MLS Preseason presented by Advocare.

Maxi Urruti scored the lone goal in the opener of the Suncoast Invitational in St. Petersburg, flicking a Bacary Sagna cross inside the far post in the 27th minute.

Freed into the box courtesy of a Derrick Jones flick, David Accam had a chance for the stoppage-time equalizer. But he took a heavy touch and was then booked for simulation when he went down in search of a penalty kick.

The Impact resume preseason play in their second of three Suncoast Invitational matches, facing the host Tampa Bay Rowdies Wednesday at 7 p.m. before facing D.C. United February 23 at 7 p.m. The Union meet D.C. United Wednesday at 7 p.m.
