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.

For Kicks Podcast, Episode 55: Catching up on WOSO news post WWC

This year has been all about the World Cup for us, and with that behind us we’ve turned our attention to everything else going on in the world of women’s soccer. But just because we’re tuned into other soccer doesn’t mean we’re not keeping a really close eye on what’s going on with Canada’s national team, too.

In this episode we talk about:

  • Canada Soccer news, measly though it may be, including:
    • our thoughts on recent comments by Coach Kenneth Heiner-Moller
    • the future of the U20 program with new head coach Rhian Wilkinson at the helm
  • NWSL news, particularly the new ESPN deal that will make NWSL games available to Canadians on TSN
  • Foothills WFC in the UWS Championship
  • Recent comments by CPL Commissioner David Clanachan on the prospect of a women’s side to the Canadian Premier League
