Philadelphia Union’s Mikael Uhre makes history with first goal at GEODIS Park

“Let my people goal,” said Nashville SC's Soccer Moses… but this time it wasn’t his people, at first.

Philadelphia Union forward Mikael Uhre will go down in history as the first goalscorer at GEODIS Park, after he opened the count at the new stadium in the 66th minute.

A bad giveaway by Nashville’s Hany Mukhtar gifted the ball to Daniel Gazdag, who provided a long pass into space to Uhre. The Danish Designated Player cut back before placing the ball in the back of the net, silencing the 30,109 fans who came to the GEODIS Park opening.

Celebrations resumed after Nashville found an equalizer soon after Jose Martinez handled the ball in the box. Randall Leal scored the ensuing penalty kick in the 85th minute.
