Episode 497 – The AFTN Soccer Show (On The Verge with special guest Tosaint Ricketts)

We’re back with another packed episode of the AFTN Soccer Show, your Vancouver Whitecaps and North American football podcast, and what a week it’s been for Canadian soccer.

There’s two windows left in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying and with four games remaining, Canada are sitting pretty and on the verge of qualification to Qatar 2022 after wins over Honduras and the US. We look back over those important victories, the key moments that earned the six points, and the standout performances.

Plus Zach joins us from Hamilton to chat about what it was like to be at the game and the atmosphere in the stadium, and we look over the current Octagon standings and what is left to play out over the next two months.

Our feature interview this episode is with a Canadian national team legend and current Whitecap Tosaint Ricketts. Tos talks to us about recently completing his degree, his role in the Whitecaps front office, his desire to continue playing in MLS, the introduction of ‘Stand By Me’, and more.

Plus we chat about Max Crepeau leaving for LAFC and hear for the first time from the player himself and Whitecaps CEO Axel Schuster, talk about Theo Bair leaving for St Johnstone in Scotland, and there’s a special Canadian national team themed Wavelength.
