“Defense wins championships,” goes the old saying. So this week we spoke to a pair of key defensive players.
Vancouver Whitecaps FC and ESPN analyst(!) Jay DeMerit joins the show to discuss the World Cup.
ESPN soccer analyst Taylor Twellman checks in to recap World Cup qualifying and the role of MLS players on the USMNT. In the second segment, Vancouver Whitecaps defender Jay DeMerit talks about his return from injury and offers some fantasy football advice.
Vancouver Whitecaps midfielder and front runner for best hair in MLS, Russell Teibert calls in to talk about his season and then ESPN soccer analyst Alexi Lalas talks about the U.S. National Men’s Team ahead of their match on Wednesday night.
Our season preview continues with Jonathan Tannenwald of Philly.com talking Union (and rubbing his education in our face) and Marc Weber of The Province with some insight on the Whitecaps.
