The Union are scheduled to play their second home game of the season at PPL Park on Saturday night at 6, and they will be facing a San Jose Earthquakes team that has not won in its last five games. But the 5-4-4 Earthquakes, who have not beaten a team since a 1-0 win over Seattle on May 22, tucked in two draws against very good teams - Columbus and Salt Lake - in going 0-2-3 in their last five games. For the 3-7-2 Union, a big goal will be extending their 2-0-1 home unbeaten streak and earning their first three-match unbeaten streak of the season.

Danny Califf has international experience with the U.S. national team and has won championships in Major League Soccer. That combination was too much for the Union to pass up, as the team yesterday announced it signed the 29-year-old defender. He last played with FC Midtjylland in the Danish Superliga. "At this point in my career - being a veteran - I'm quite comfortable being asked to take on a leadership role," the California native said.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Despite playing without two of their defensive stalwarts, the Union registered only their second shutout since the beginning of May in a scoreless draw with the San Jose Earthquakes at Buck Shaw Stadium on Saturday. Although there weren't any goals scored in the game, there was plenty of drama off the field, as Peter Nowak made a number of changes to what had been a fairly consistent starting lineup in recent weeks. One move was expected: Gabriel Farfan started at left back after Jordan Harvey was traded to Vancouver for allocation money on Thursday.
