Canada is going to the Rio 2016 Olympics!

It’s mission accomplished as Canada places second at the CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying Championship and secures their spot on the Road to Rio. Are you relieved? Because we’re relieved.

Minutes after the tournament wraps up, we jump on the mic and share our thoughts about the results, including the predictions we made in our last podcast. (Who owes who a chocolate bar? You’ll have to listen to find out!). We discuss standout performances and our general thoughts about how Canada fared in each of the five games they played.

We also talk about Canada’s participation in the upcoming Algarve Cup, some of the other upcoming women’s soccer tournaments (including the CONCACAF U17 Championship tournament) and our hopes for some friendly matches on home turf before the Olympics. And, with the NWSL 2016 schedule just released, we look ahead to what the new season may hold.

This is quite possibly our most jam-packed episode to date.

These are indeed exciting times in the world of women’s soccer, especially when you’re a Canadian national team fan.

Seven of 12 spots have already been claimed for the Rio 2016 Olympics and two more are up for grabs in the CONCACAF Olympic qualifying tournament in Texas from February 10 to 21. If Canada claims one of the top two spots in the eight team tournament, they’re off to the Olympics.

In this latest podcast, we discuss the Canadian team’s roster for the CONCACAF tournament, make predictions for match outcomes, talk a little about the teams who have already qualified for Rio and which other teams we think might qualify, and let fans know where they can watch the CONCACAF tournament. (Yes, we can all watch the matches!) We also touch on the recent NWSL college draft and place a few bets, like ya do.
