Episode 590 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Building A Different World)

We’re back with another AFTN Soccer Show packed full of Vancouver Whitecaps, Major League Soccer, Canadian national team, and international football chat.

Vanni Sartini and the Whitecaps learned their disciplinary fates this past week after all the LAFC playoff shenanigans. We delve into what was handed out, what is means to the ‘Caps coach and the club going forward, and whether it was fair punishment. Plus we look at Russell Teibert’s potential future in Vancouver and the weekend’s action in the two MLS Conference finals.

On the international stage, the legend that is Christine Sinclair hangs up her international boots, we look at the emotional farewell matches against Australia and ponder who can step up to fill her very big boots as the face of Canadian women’s football.

We also chat about more ways to try and fix the broken Canadian soccer system, the purchase of League1 BC by League1 Canada, look at the UEFA 2024 draw, and kick off AFTN’s 2023 Festive Fifteen with the first three entrants.
