Philadelphia Union scored a late equalizer to deny Inter Miami their first win since the middle of May. Co-owner David Beckham was in the stands as he watched his team break their seven-game losing streak. They have only managed to score two goals during this time. Philadelphia themselves are in a soup having lost their last four games. Robbie Robinson scored for Inter Miami while Kacper Przybylko equalized for the Philadelphia Union.
“David’s presence is vital, and it shows that we are all in it together,” Inter Miami boss Phil Neville said after the draw against Philadelphia Union. “Since the defeat on Wednesday is a collective togetherness that even surprised me, in terms of the ownership and all of the staff. We still need to improve in many things and the strength of the owner makes this football club. Never once have they doubted me.”
“I am massively proud of the players, we deserved a win but the attitude was everything you wanted to see in a team,” he added. “It has been a really tough few days but I saw hurt in the players’ eyes and they gave me a performance. I just wanted to see a group who would fight for each other and make the fans proud.”
“We are hurting, the ownership is hurting and we wanted the three points but what gives me pride is that we didn’t just play the long ball. We had an identity everyone enjoyed watching.” Neville continued. “It’s baby steps – a foundation – but it’s just a start. We didn’t get our rewards but we will do. That’s all I ask for. We have been criticized and rightly so but the players deserve praise after this.”
