For Kicks Podcast, Episode 45: 2018 U17 WWC preview and interview with Futbol Ace’s Ana De Souza

The 2018 U17 Women’s World Cup starts this week and runs from November 13 to December 1. Canada will participate in the tournament so we’re looking forward to another glimpse at the future of Canadian women’s soccer!

We’re also super excited that Jessica had a chance to chat with Ana De Souza from Futbol Ace, a podcast that focuses on women’s soccer from CONCACAF nations. Just like us, their goal is to grow the women’s game by providing fans with informative and entertaining content on their podcast and blog, so it was a great conversation.

In this episode, we:

  • preview the U17 Women’s World Cup
  • chat with Futbol Ace’s Ana De Souza
  • get caught up on NCAA

We were up bright and early for this episode and that’s because before we recorded, we had a chance to chat with Duane Rollins for the The Two Solitudes Soccer Podcast. We had so much fun talking to Duane so we’ll be sharing the episode that features our chat soon.

On our next episode, we’ll have full coverage of the U17 WWC tournament and we’re bringing back Catching Up with Canucks Abroad’s Oscar Melander, so watch for that, too!

For Kicks Podcast, Episode 15: Ramping up for the U17 WWC and an interview with Aaliyah Scott

With the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup in Jordan about to fire up and the NWSL Championship just around the corner, we find ourselves coming in to another busy season of soccer. It’s a fantastic problem to have. In this episode, we get ready for what’s to come with:

  • NWSL playoff predictions
  • A brief update on how the Canadians are doing abroad and in the NCAA and NWSL
  • A preview of the U-17 WWC including background on how they qualified and a look at the group stage draws (update: the U17 WWC games will be aired on TSN and RDS2 in Canada)
  • An interview with the truly delightful and talented Aaliyah Scott. Aaliyah helped Canada qualify for the U17 Women’s World Cup at the U17 CONCACAF Women’s Qualifying tournament that was held in March in Grenada. She also took home silver at the U15 CONCACAF Championship in Florida in August, where she scored her first international goal. Check her out on Twitter!
