The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out for another packed show of Vancouver Whitecaps, MLS, and Canadian football chat.
The Whitecaps made it one loss in their last 15 matches with a crucial 3-0 win over San Jose Earthquakes at the weekend, moving to within a point of the MLS playoff places thanks to a Brian White hat-trick. We pick over the bones of that one, hear from head coach Vanni Sartini, and see where the win leaves the ‘Caps in the playoff picture.
We also delve in the Whitecaps attacking and defensive options for the rest of this season and next, and debate whether now is the time for a settled starting line-up when possible or is the tinkering a way to keep things fresh and the opposition on their toes?
Turning our attention to the international stage, we look ahead to Canada’s three World Cup qualifiers and chat with ‘Caps keeper Maxime Crepeau about them.
Plus what is Vanni Sartini’s favourite jam? Does Florian Jungwirth fancy a chocolate digestive?
