She’s also had a stellar career with the Clemson Tigers at Clemson University and was just drafted to play for Sky Blue FC in the NWSL.

For Kicks Podcast, Episode 12: CANWNT and USWNT at the Rio Olympics, a chat with RJ Allen of Backline Soccer

Canada has reached the podium for the second Olympics in a row and will leave Rio with a hard-fought bronze medal! From the bottom of our little Canada-soccer-loving hearts, we could not possibly be more proud. In our next podcast we’ll be getting into the nitty gritty of Canada’s final days in the tournament, but until then…

In our latest episode, we talk to RJ Allen, editor-in-chief at Backline Soccer, co-host of the Scouting Report podcast and writer for Sounder At Heart. We discuss our thoughts about the US’s early exit from the Rio Olympic tournament, what we expect the impact on the NWSL and negotiations with USSF to be, and, of course, Canada’s bronze medal win.

We wrap things up with a quick look at the U-15 Championship in Florida, where Canada went home with silver.
