The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out for another packed show of Vancouver Whitecaps, MLS, and Canadian football chat.
It’s been a busy week for Vancouver Whitecaps with three games in seven days and seven points taken from them. It’s left the team above the playoff line with three games to go. Can they hang on? Can they even secure a home playoff game? And what does all of that mean for interim head coach Vanni Sartini? It’s going to be a nervy end to the season.
We chat about all of that and more as we look back at the Whitecaps dramatic come from behind win in Portland and the hangover draw in San Jose. What does that do to the team’s mentality and how the rest of the West will view them? Was dropping points in San Jose just them running out of juice? We look at the latest playoff picture in the MLS West and preview the crucial midweek match against Minnesota.
And there’s still time to chat about the Canadian women’s celebration tour, play a Wavelength song all about Qatar 2022, and bring you two more tunes from our Artists of the Month, Australian band The Chats.
