We’re back with another packed episode of the AFTN Soccer Show for your listening pleasure, with lots of Vancouver Whitecaps, Major Soccer League, and Canadian football chat.
It’s been a great weekend for the Whitecaps as both their MLS and MLS Next Pro teams came up with big wins. The ‘Caps first team saw off Toronto FC 1-0 in what was a pretty poor match truth be told, but one that generated more than a few talking points and controversial incidents! We delve into all of that and more, in what was a very important win for Vancouver.
We also look ahead to Wednesday’s Canadian Championship clash with CPL side Valour FC and hear the thoughts of Vanni Sartini and Tosaint Ricketts ahead of the match, plus we catch up with Phil Dos Santos who is looking to be on the other end of a Vancouver cup shock this time around.
Plus after Seattle Sounders’ success in the CONCACAF Champions League, we look at how the Whitecaps have fallen so far behind their Cascadian rivals and we chat about some interesting developments in lower league Canadian soccer.
