For Kicks Podcast, Episode 73: Canada in the 2021 SheBelieves Cup

From February 18 to 24, 2021, the CANWNT was back on the pitch in red and it feels so good. In this episode, we talk about Canada in the SheBelieves Cup. From our thoughts on the newer faces, to new head coach Bev Priestman’s decisions in the wake of missing players and injuries, to Canada’s pesky troubles scoring goals, we dive right in to the whole tournament.

For Kicks Podcast, Episode 72: Pre-SheBelieves Cup chat with Meaghen Johnson

In just a few short days, Canada’s women will be back on the pitch facing USA, Argentina and Brazil in the 2021 SheBelieves Cup. We can hardly believe it’s been the better part of a year since we’ve had an actual match to watch and talk about on the podcast.

In this episode we’re joined by Meaghen Johnson, women’s soccer contributor and highlight manager/producer at TSN SportsCentre, to chat about who we expect to see, what we hope to come out of this tournament and more. 

A little later in the episode, we also talk about a new women’s professional soccer league in North America and how we’re trying to drum up support for our own new local women’s team (spoiler: we want you! slide into our DMs).

The new year has given us lots to talk about so far. Some of it big, some of it small, some of it amazing, some of it not so great. We try to get to it all in our latest episode!

In this episode, we talk about:

  • Recent CANWNT news including Canada going to the SheBelieves Cup
  • Canadians in the NWSL draft and those who are moving around in clubs abroad
  • Rhian Wilkinson’s announcement that she is leaving Canada Soccer
  • The addition of St. Albert Impact FC to the United Women’s Soccer League, including recent player signings
