We’re back with another AFTN Soccer Show packed full of Vancouver Whitecaps, Major League Soccer, and Canadian Premier League chat.
Vancouver Whitecaps have gone from unbeaten in four to winless in four as the limp their way into MLS playoffs. Felipe Vallejo joins us to chat about the last two ‘Caps games, what’s not clicking right now and how to solve it, and look around the MLS West and plot the Whitecaps path to the postseason. Surely they can’t miss out? Plus we look at the top 25 MLS jersey sales this season and the price gouging of fans by Inter Miami.
Turning our attention to the CPL, we sit down with Cavalry FC head coach Tommy Wheeldon Jr for an in-depth half hour chat about his side winning the regular season title, booking a spot in next year’s CONCACAF Champions Cup, and looking ahead to the playoffs to come. Plus we also round up the weekend’s action across the league that saw HFX Wanderers book a place in the playoffs, the last BC derby of the season, and Forge’s Kyle Bekker and Bobby Smyrniotis go off on CPL refereeing.
