CHESTER, Pa. — Philadelphia Union rookie Danny Mwanga was forced to leave his team’s match with the Chicago Fire on Saturday in the 55th minute.
The striker suffered what manager Peter Nowak termed a "slightly seperated shoulder" when he took a hard fall after a collision with Chicago goalkeeper Sean Johnson late in the first half.
Mwanga will undergo an X-ray Saturday night to determine the extent of the injury. It is still undetermined if Mwanga will be fit for Wednesday's match away to the San Jose Earthquakes.
“Our travel day is Monday so [the training staff] are going to do whatever is necessary to make him available," Nowak said after the game. "If he’s not ready he’ll have to skip the match. After the game, we’ll have 10 days until our next one so we try to make it work for the team because Danny is very productive and had some good chances today.”
HIGHLIGHTS: Philadelphia 1, Chicago 0
