Episode 247 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Whitecaps Make An Impact with guests Alphonso Davies and Felipe Martins)

Vancouver Whitecaps were Back In Black and Back to Business on Sunday, getting their 2018 MLS season off to a winning start against Montreal Impact.

We look back at the 2-1 win, chat about all the team and individual highs and lows, and hear from both head coaches, Montreal’s Rémi Garde and Vancouver’s Carl Robinson. Plus we also look at all the weekend’s MLS matches.

The star of the show was Alphonso Davies, and we sat down with the young Whitecaps winger for an in-depth chat about the season ahead, his growth these last two seasons, his relationship with Kei Kamara, getting his Canadian citizenship and playing at the Gold Cup, and more.

And there’s still time to look at all the comings and goings in Whitecapsland this week, chat with one of the new arrivals, Felipe Martins, hear Carl Robinson’s thoughts on a stacked Whitecaps midfield, and feature Barmy Army in this week’s Wavelength section.
