Player ratings as Mikael Uhre and Randall Leal inagurate Geodis Park

The Philadelphia Union held Nashville SC to a 1-1 on Sunday as the hosts inaugurated their new home Geodis Park. Mikael Uhre made history as the first ever player to score in the stadium, before Randall Leal’s penalty canceled out his efforts to mark the first Nashville goal.

Nashville kicked off strong, edging out the Philadelphia Union in possession and opportunities. The hosts were unlucky not to get the goal in the first 45, as Dax McCarty and Alex Muyl both led the attack with two stunning shots on goal.

The midfielder, in particular, tested Union goalkeeper Andre Blake, forcing him to dive left before getting a slight touch on the ball to keep it out of the net.

But after the break, it was the Philadelphia Union who returned stronger.

The visiting side gained confidence, enabling Daniel Gazdag to make the run forward and find Mikael Uhre inside the box for the first goal of the game. The striker’s right footed shot into the center of the goal made history as the first ever inside Nashville’s newest stadium.
