The 2009 NSCAA National Youth Player of the Year appeared in 16 games during his first season, scoring three goals for the expansion Philadelphia Union. He figured in roughly half the team's games in 2011 but only found the back of the net once. The next season started off poorly, as the Union struggled under Peter Nowak and McInerney fell to the bottom of the depth chart.
"He didn’t tell us how we were playing or what we should do," McInerney told MLSsoccer.com about Nowak. "So I didn’t know much." Nowak was fired, however, and new manager John Hackworth reinserted his young charge. The move rejuvenated the striker, who has responded with a string of impressive performances and continued to improve. His excellent 2013 form in MLS led to the Gold Cup call. The American soccer world is watching.
