It’s international week all over the football world and we’re no different on the AFTN Soccer Show, as we bring you a special internationally themed episode.
There’s a few ‘Caps away representing their country on international duty this week, with perhaps the most important games coming up for the Whitecaps two Costa Ricans, Kendall Waston and Christian Bolanos.
We speak to both of them ahead of a busy week that could see the Ticos qualify for another World Cup. Waston tells us [at 05:11 mark] what qualification for Russia would mean for him personally, the task ahead, and just how good this current crop of Costa Ricans are, while Bolanos [09:54] looks ahead to whether or not he’ll head to the Gold Cup with the team in July.
Moving on to Canada, we hear from an injured Whitecap who sadly can’t be at the Gold Cup with Canada this summer, David Edgar, [13:37] who chats with us about his injury, when we might see him back on the pitch, life as a colour commentator, the Gold Cup, and the Canadian Premier League.
From a Canadian national team veteran to the team’s newest recruit, Alphonso Davies, [23:14] as he chats with Harjeet Johal about what playing for Canada means to him, his meteoric rise, what his family have meant to his career, and more.
And we wrap the show up with a Canadian Hall of Famer, the newest recruit in fact, Paul Stalteri, [30:21] who chats about his career, the future of the game here, and a lot more.
