Episode 171 - The AFTN Soccer Podcast (Draft Day Extravaganza!)
What number of offseason draft was this? We've lost count. But Friday was the big one, MLS SuperDraft. You know it's special because it has Super in the title!
Not that explosive and Vancouver Whitecaps had fewer selections it felt than in seasons past, but they came away with a couple of solid, promising defenders.
We speak with 'Caps coach Carl Robinson (at 02:58 mark) after all the draft hoopla was over for the afternoon about Vancouver's selections, his search for a new striker and attacking midfielder, and a number of other offseason talking points in Capsland.
We also chat with both of the Whitecaps draft picks, UCONN Huskies right back Jakob Nerwinski (18:32) and St Francis RedFlash centre back Francis De Vries (32:58) about their journey to the pro ranks and a lot more besides.
We discuss all these things and a lot more. There's a lot of drafting and Whitecaps chat to be had, so have a listen.
