It was a chance for young players to gain some experience and for veterans to get a breather in this long season for the Union, and Roger Torres took advantage of his extended time. The 20-year-old midfielder played the entire game in the Union's 1-0 win over English Premier League club Everton during Wednesday's friendly at PPL Park before a sellout crowd of 18,582. Christian Hernandez's blast from just inside the box in the 88th minute was the game's lone goal. Torres, who was the Union's most impressive player, hit teammates with long pinpoint passes and constantly pushed the ball on the attack.

Nick Sakiewicz couldn't hide his disappointment. The Union CEO and operating partner said he was told a few days ago that United States national team goalkeeper Tim Howard would not be joining Everton for Wednesday's 7:30 p.m. friendly against the Union at PPL Park in Chester. Howard is not even with his team. Everton manager David Moyes says his keeper is getting a rest following his play for the United States in the Gold Cup. The Americans advanced to the final, losing to Mexico, 4-2, on June 25 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.
