Episode 396 – The AFTN Soccer Show (A Slow Life featuring Ryan Raposo, Jaap Stam, and Christine Sinclair)
The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out and it’s another packed episode.
Our feature interview this week is with a rising young Vancouver Whitecaps talent, Canadian winger Ryan Raposo. We chat with Ryan about his impressive start to his time in MLS, how being away in Germany and college helps in lockdown times like these, getting into the Canadian Olympic mix, and more.
We also look at the latest leaked plans from MLS about their proposed Orlando tournament and ponder whether it’s all even worthwhile, plus we whip around Europe to chat about the latest news from the leagues trying to restart in the coming weeks, and update you on our beloved FK Slutsk and Vikingur Gota.
Talking of MLS, there was a managerial appointment this week as Dutch legend Jaap Stam was named FC Cincinnati head coach. We talk about the appointment and bring you some of the most interesting highlights from his introductory press conference that we were on.
And there’s still time to bring you some audio with Christine Sinclair about breaking that golascoring record at just the right time, have a discussion on Alphonso Davies and the recent Province article breaking down some of the ins and outs of his transfer to Bayern Munich, and there’s our usual musical delights of Wavelength and Three of a Kinf.
