[MLS] Rookie Danny Mwanga scored in the seventh minute to give Philadelphia a 1-0 lead against defending champion Real Salt Lake Wednesday at PPL Park, but an equalizer by Fabian Espindola 10 minutes later held up as the teams tied, 1-1.

Sebastien Le Toux nicely set up Mwanga’s goal for his seventh assist of the season. Mwanga’s goal gave him the lead among MLS rookies with six, breaking a tie with Zach Schilawski of New England. Espindola took a pass from Tony Beltran to score his fourth goal of 2010, one more than he tallied last year.

The Union (4-10-4, 16 points) is seventh in the Eastern Conference and 1-3-2 in its last six games despite playing five of them at home. RSL (10-6-4, 36 points) is second in the Western Conference, four points behind overall points leader Los Angeles.

Both teams are at home Saturday. Philly hosts the Rapids, and RSL welcomes Eastern Conference leader Columbus.

    US Soccer needs to get Danny a US Passport asap. He is no longer Congolese... Please don't mess this up like Rossi and Subotic.
