The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out for another packed show of Vancouver Whitecaps, MLS, and Canadian national team chat.
We kick things off in Whitecapsland as we look at the big stories of the week from fixtures to friendlies to loan deals and squad depth, plus we have a chat with a couple of the ‘Caps’ full backs as we talk Iraqi football with Ali Adnan and competition for places with Jake Nerwinski. Plus we talk Texan derbies with Austin FC’s Claudio Reyna.
Moving on to the international stage, we look at Canada’s two big wins in World Cup qualifiers, the disappointment of the U23 failing to reach the Olympics, and we hear from John Herdman, Mauro Biello, Samuel Piette, David Norman Jr, and Tajon Buchanan as we talk about a whole number of topic coming out of both camps.
All this plus Football Violence Awareness month wraps up in Wavelength with The Gonads and we have music from Russian hardbass artists of the month DLB, Russian witchcore band Ic3peak, and Toronto’s Kiwi Jr.
