It’s a busy day at the ETR studios, and not just because it’s David’s birthday. First up, the guys discuss the US national team’s historic victory against Germany, as friend of the show Bobby Wood scores the game winner (again!!). The US U-20s are also high on life after Zack Steffen saved a late penalty kick to send them to the quarterfinals of the U-20 World Cup. Goalscorer Rubio Rubin wakes up early to chat about the experience.
In the second segment, Simon says you have no excuse not to watch all five MLS matches this weekend. They’re all so even, it’s hard to choose just one. Just remember Friday’s all clear. Then Chelsea Ladies head coach Emma Hayes also joins the guys to talk Women’s World Cup, USWNT, Abby Wambach, Pia Sundhage and the dark horses of the tournament.
In the mailbag, Simon gets taken to task for his Jordan Morris stance and a fan shares details from his graduation trip to three MLS venues, which makes David jealous.
