2016 Team of the Week (Wk 18): Alberg, Ilsinho lead Union rout of DC

It has been a dream season for the Philadelphia Union, as they currently lead the Eastern Conference in points per game, and Saturday night they proved just how "for real" they are.

Philly defeated perennial playoff contender D.C. United 3-0 behind another sterling offensive performance. Ilsinho recorded two goals and Roland Alberg put home a penalty kick, along with an assist. The Union now lead the league in goals with 32.
