Philadelphia Union U17s advance to Sunday’s MLS Next Cup final at Toyota Stadium

The Philadelphia Union U17s are heading to the MLS Next Cup final in Toyota Stadium on Sunday night.

The Union booked a spot in the final — a second straight for many of the players who were on the U15 team that made the final a year ago — with a 2-1 win over LAFC on Friday night in Texas.

Alex Perez gave the Union a lead and Marcos Zambrano scored the game winner after LAFC tied the game up.

They’ll play the winner of Columbus Crew and Orlando City at 8 p.
