Episode 617 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Shut Up and Read Your Nick Hornby)

We’re back with another AFTN Soccer Show packed full of Vancouver Whitecaps, Major League Soccer, Canadian Championship, Canadian Premier League, and Canadian national team chat. The football keeps coming and so do the podcasts!

The Whitecaps head into the international break in good spirits after two wins in four days against Western Conference opposition. We delve into both matches and performances, and look at where the ‘Caps are right now in terms of tactics, personnel, and positioning, at what is effectively the halfway point of the season. Plus we round-up the weekend’s action across MLS.

We also look at the draw for the Canadian Championship semi-finals and the nightmare travel it throws up for the ‘Caps, plus we round up the weekend’s action in the CPL and have a chat with Colorado’s CMNT defender Moise Bombito ahead of Canada’s two upcoming friendlies and Copa America.

All of this plus we have a new Album of the Month from Heavenly and kick off a month of Euro 2024 themed songs in Wavelength.
