For Kicks, Episode 47: CANWNT vs. NORWNT, Huitema goes pro

2019 is underway and that means the countdown to the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France is on. The Canadian women’s soccer team has had an encouraging start with two matches in January against Switzerland and Norway.

Since our last episode, there’s also been tons of news from our Canadian players at the club level, and we see lots of great opportunities going into this World Cup year.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • Canada’s World Cup group draw
  • player news, including Jordyn Huitema’s decision to go pro
  • the NWSL college draft
  • the Canada vs. Norway international friendly match from January 22, 2019

In our next couple of episodes, we’ll cover the Algarve Cup which takes place from February 27 to March 6, 2019.

For Kicks, Episode 36: NWSL draft news and the CONCACAF U20 tournament

Is it just us, or has this NWSL off-season felt like a rollercoaster ride? News from the draft, trades and teams folding has been rolling in hard and fast. We had a lot to catch up on.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • The NWSL draft and how changes within the league have impacted Canadian players
  • The disappointing result of the CONCACAF U20 Women’s World Cup qualifying tournament

We also get pumped up for this month’s Algarve Cup tournament, so in our next episode we’ll be talking all about that.

For Kicks, Episode 35: A farewell to John Herdman, CONCACAF Women’s U20 Championship

A very (if not slightly belated) Happy New Year, woso fans! It was nice to have a little time off from podcasting over the holidays but our return couldn’t have been timed better because something we really didn’t expect to happen happened last week: John Herdman announced he would be leaving the Canadian women’s soccer team to coach the Canadian men’s team.

So tune in and listen to what is basically a therapy session where we talk through our feelings on this big announcement. In this episode, we:

  • Try real hard to be diplomatic as we dish on the facts and our feelings about John Herdman’s departure from CANWNT
  • Share info about the upcoming Algarve Cup
  • Talk about the CONCACAF U20 Championship tournament that’s about to get underway
  • Share some of our hopes and dreams for this year’s NWSL draft
  • Get the conversation started about some recent NWSL news and trades

There was more to cover than we expected, but then again, there always is. We’ll get into NWSL talk a little deeper in one of our next couple of episodes.
