Episode 296 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Crossroads with guests Scott Arfield, Tony Waiters, and John Herdman)
The international break affords Vancouver Whitecaps a bye week, but there’s no rest for us as we bring you another packed episode.
The break gives us a chance to look ahead at what the Whitecaps squad could and should look like next season, as the team approaches their most important offseason in the MLS era.
We’ve got two in-depth interviews with you this week, the first is with Canadian national team captain Scott Arfield, as he chats about international life and his big move to Rangers, plus on the 39th anniversary of the Whitecaps 1979 NASL Soccer Bowl win, we chat with the man who led that team to glory, and guided Canada to the 1986 World Cup in Mexico, Tony Waiters.
We also look at the Canadian national team’s record-breaking win over the US Virgin Islands and how the program is moving forward under John Herdman, while also hearing from the man himself.
All this, plus we look at the main Whitecaps and Canadian Premier League news stories of the week and Flyscreen are back for this week’s Wavelength.
