Episode 470 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Burning Bright with special guest Adam Day)

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

The Whitecaps extended their unbeaten run to six matches on Friday night. It may have been another draw, but every point counts, especially on the road, and it’s a case of slowly, slowly catchy monkey as they climb the Western Conference standings.

We pick over the bones of Vancouver’s scoreless draw in San Jose, chat about a solid defensive effort, the offensive spark we saw later in the game, and talk injury concerns. Plus we hear some postgame thoughts from head coach Marc Dos Santos and we look ahead to what really feels like a must win game against Austin FC on Wednesday.

Our feature interview this episode is with Canadian women’s national team assistant coach Adam Day. Adam joins us for an in-depth look behind the scenes at the women’s historic gold medal winning performance at the Tokyo Olympics. We find out about life in the village bubble, talk through the games and the gold, and chat about what’s next for the team and the women’s domestic game here in Canada. Plus we look ahead to upcoming FVSL season where Adam will coach FC Tigers.

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