Episode 178 – The AFTN Soccer Show (History Awaits with Carl Robinson, Rich Fagan, and Jake Nerwinski)
Vancouver Whitecaps have one foot in the CONCACAF Champions League semi-finals following last week’s first leg at New York Red Bulls. Can they make history?
We look back at Wednesday’s 1-1 draw and ahead to this Thursday’s second leg. What went right? What were the concerns? And how confident should the ‘Caps feel? We also hear the thoughts of Carl Robinson, Jordan Harvey, and Sheanon Williams.
There’s a new Whitecap to talk about too – Brek Shea. He may not be in Vancouver yet, but we chat with ‘Caps coach Carl Robinson about what interested him in the midfielder, his plans for him with the team, and whether there’s any concerns about the reputation that precedes the American international.
We also chat with Vancouver’s first pick in this year’s MLS SuperDraft, right back Jake Nerwinski about the whirlwind start to his pro career, playing in that Champions League game, and settling in to the pro ranks with the ‘Caps.
And there’s still time to turn our attentions to WFC2 and have a chat with new head coach Rich Fagan.
