Episode 535 – The AFTN Soccer Show (The Future Is Now)

We’re back with another packed show of Vancouver Whitecaps, Major League Soccer, World Cup, and Canadian soccer chat.

It’s been a busy week in Whitecapsland with new players coming in, some departures like Lucas Cavallini finally confirmed, and the preseason plans officially announced. We’re joined by Harjeet Johal to chat about all of that, plus we look at some of the players available from other clubs in the various MLS clubs and ponder who would be a good fit in Vancouver.

It was a good season for CF Montreal and we’re joined by Eve Powell from The Ball Is Round podcast to chat about it all, look at the offseason roster decisions announced this week, look ahead to 2023, chat about another rebrand at the club, and look at the six players from the club that will be off representing Canada in Qatar.

With the 2022 FIFA World Cup now just one day away, we take a look at all the runners and riders in Groups E to H, including Canada in Group F, and making a rash of predictions along the way.
