Episode 404 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Future Plans and Memories)
The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out and it is packed as usual as we bring you more chat from the MLS is Back tournament in Orlando.
Vancouver Whitecaps’ Disney dreams are over. Eliminated from the tournament by the lottery of (not very well taken) penalties, the ‘Caps went out to Sporting Kansas City and are now on their way back to BC and 14 days quarantine.
We delve into all the ins and outs of the match, the heroes and villains, the highs and the lows. Plus we hear from both head coaches, Vancouver’s Marc Dos Santos and KC’s Peter Vermes, and discuss how this tournament has left the ‘Caps looking against the rest of MLS in a competitive sense.
We also look at the three other Round of 16 matches played this weekend, two of which saw the rest of the Canadian contingent eliminated from the competition. What can they take away from the tournament and what lies in store for them now? We chat about that and hear from Montreal coach Thierry Henry, Impact players Samuel Piette and Jukka Raitala, Toronto coach Greg Vanney and TFC’s Michael Bradley, plus Philadelphia Union coach Jim Curtin talks about his side’s win over New England.
What lies in store for the Canadian clubs now? We chat about the tentative plans for the next stage of the MLS season and hear from ‘Caps coach Marc Dos Santos on it.
