Episode 523 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Pump It Better)
We’re back with another jam-packed episode of the AFTN Soccer Show for your listening pleasure as we talk Vancouver Whitecaps, MLS, and football on Canadian TV.
The Whitecaps left it late again to get the job done against Houston Dynamo on Friday night, but two late goals gave them a dramatic last ditch victory and with other results going their way this weekend in the West, it’s going to be a fascinating run-in to end the regular season.
We delve into the main talking points coming out of the match, look at the fantastic MLS debut from Simon Becher and hear from the man himself, look at the importance of WFC2 to the Whitecaps, look at the lie of the land in the Western Conference, and hear the postgame thoughts of the gaffer Vanni Sartini and match winner Lucas Cavallini.
