Dike and Nate return for the latest edition of the SoccerNation Podcast – [powered by soccerloco] to break down the most recent two international fixtures of the United States Men’s National Team against Costa Rica and Honduras. It wasn’t pretty, nor was it fun to watch, but the USA still has a chance of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia thanks to a solitary point from two matches.
The talk shifts then to the other big news of the week that the North American Soccer League has had its application for Division 2 sanctioning denied by the United States Soccer Federation. The guys discuss what this means in the context of San Diego’s forthcoming expansion team and the league at large as the American soccer pyramid’s foundations are rocked once again.
Things get more happy when the conversation shifts back to club football. With the Premier League, Champions League, Liga MX and the rest of the world’s domestic competitions picking back up, there is light at the end of the tunnel!
