Episode 463 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Bella Bella – Whitecaps woes continue, Canada kick off Gold Cup campaign, Copa America and Euro 2020 champions crowned)

The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out for another packed show of Vancouver Whitecaps and international football chat.

What a few weeks of fantastic football we’ve had to watch, and there’s another few weeks ahead. The Whitecaps also played another game, and we’ll be looking at all of that action across the globe this episode.

The ‘Caps extended their winless run to eight with a midweek loss too RSL. We look back at that, try and work out where it’s all going wrong, and question whether the imminent new additions will turn the season around or is MDS in for a further tough time of it when the team get back to Vancouver.

Despite MLS playing lots of matches, international competitions have been in full flow and we talk Canada in the Gold Cup, Messi finally winning a Copa America, and the highs of Italy’s win at Euro 2020 and the lows of the abuse England’s penalty takers have received.

Here’s the rundown for the main segments from the episode:

02.37: Intro and football cards
09.27: Whitecaps News of the Week – another loss, where is it all going wrong, MDS’ future, Cornelius loaned out, transfer rumours
51.07: Canada and Gold Cup chat
64.21: Copa America chat
73.12: Euro 2020 chat
92.41: Wavelength – The Chromosones – Goalkeeper

    Speaking of goalkeepers, the most entertaining thing of these international tournaments was watching the penalty shootout between Argentina and Colombia. Emiliano Martinez trash talking every Colombian shooter right up to the moment they hit the ball and then stopping 3 of them were some of the best mind-games I have seen on a pitch. And the fact that there were no fans in the stands so you could hear the whole thing as it was happening made it even better. You didn’t even need to understand Spanish to know what Martinez was doing. It was brilliant and I am all for more of that kind of entertainment.

    “Are you nervous? I can see your nervous. I know you, I am going to eat you, watch me eat you”…… STOP!

    That was so good. All for that. Surprised more keepers don’t do it, or maybe they do and we just never hear it.
