Philadelphia Union stage the biggest blowout in MLS history with a 7-0 win over DC United


From time to time it happens that Philadelphia open a 7-0 lead against Washington, but Friday was a first in football.

The Philadelphia Union set a record for the most lopsided win in 26-year MLS history with a 7-0 win over DC United, and the game could have been even more lopsided than the result suggested. Union had scored five goals by the end of the first half and ended up beating DC 24-11 (12-3 on shots).

Three players were responsible for every Philadelphia goal: Julián Carranza, who scored a hat-trick, while Alejandro Bedoya and Mikkel Uhre each scored two goals.

The United head coach didn’t draw many punches after the game.

From the Washington Post:

“It’s an embarrassing performance,” said United interim manager Chad Ashton, who struggled to speak over the post-game fireworks that followed Union’s in-game eruption. “They surpassed us, they surpassed us, they surpassed us, they surpassed us. I don’t have many explanations.”

The defeat continues an overall miserable season for United, who sit penultimate with a 5-2-10 record (17 points) and sacked head coach Hernan Losada in April. Meanwhile, the Union improved their record to an Eastern Conference best of 8-9-2 (33 points).
