Episode 481 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Rising Temperatures – Whitecaps v SKC, MLS West playoff race, Canada World Cup qualifying; CPL latest)
The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out for another packed show of Vancouver Whitecaps, MLS, and Canadian football chat.
We cover a lot of bases again this week as we talk football at club and country level around the country.
The temperature gauge was certainly rising in the MLS Western Conference as the action heated up with six games remaining. The Whitecaps finished the weekend in the same situation they started it, one point and one place back off the playoff line. They kept there with a fantastically hard fought home win over Sporting Kansas City.
We pick over the bones of that game, look at the weekend’s action in the West, and preview the ‘Caps next two matches. Can they keep things going?
Plus we look at Canada’s World Cup qualifier against Panama and cast our eyes over the latest results and standings in the Canadian Premier League.
