Knee punches, why players care about FIFA ratings & Steve Zakuani on Jordan Morris, DeAndre Yedlin & Jozy Altidore
It’s just FIFA, right? Wrong! Why pro players care how they’re rated in the game (hint: banter). Rudy Camacho is gonna be at the bottom of the composure rankings after Wednesday night’s knee punch that helped knock the Impact out of Canadian Championship contention. Charlie shares his own moment of madness, then the Andrew and David dig in on FC Dallas and Colorado before Sounders legend Steve Zakuani joins the show to talk Jordan Morris’ polarizing place in American soccer, DeAndre Yedlin’s desire to return home, Gonzalo Higuain’s outlook in Miami, what makes a good player-turned coach and Jozy Altidore’s haters. Plus, Atlanta United’s new DP and Matt Turner love.
