For Kicks Podcast, Episode 56: Canada vs. Japan preview

Canada Soccer has made sure the CANWNT will get a chance to stretch in the next FIFA window with a friendly vs. Japan, in Japan, on October 6. Like many fans, we’ve looked at this year as an overall disappointment, from the underwhelming performance at the World Cup, to seeming neglect of up-and-coming Canadian players.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • the roster that will travel to Japan for the Oct. 6 match
  • why we think Canada Soccer has failed to call up players the rest of us have our eyes on
  • what we expect from this friendly
  • other news out of the Canadian women’s soccer world
  • the near-solidified semi-finalists for the 2019 NWSL season
  • …and maybe a few tangents, too!

We’ll be back soon with another episode following the friendly, to see if our expectations and predictions are right.
