Episode 207 - The AFTN Soccer Show (New York City Is A Graveyard with guest Carl Valentine)
Vancouver Whitecaps shocked the world, well us and a lot of others here, by fighting back to beat a star-studded, and unbeaten in five, New York City FC side at BC Place on Wednesday night.
We look back at the highs and lows from the game, some individual performances, hear from coaches Carl Robinson and Patrick Viera, and Fredy Montero talks about Herrera's flop.
We also take a quick look at the state of both conferences as we move past the halfway point of the regular season, and chat with NYCFC’s Jack Harrison and Ben Sweat.
Vancouver Whitecaps U16s saw off Seattle Sounders in a Cascadian derby USSDA quarter-final match up to claim a place in next week’s Final Four in LA. We chat with assistant coach, and Whitecaps legend, Carl Valentine about the win he oversaw.
All this plus, anyone fancy a chocolate digestive?
