ExtraTime Radio: Landon Donovan (Chipotle MLS Homegrown)
ETR goes coast to coast from a cup final to an all-star game in a jam-packed show. Andrew and Calen Carr sit down in Philadelphia to try and digest what has been a wild Gold Cup 2015 and break down El Tri’s triumph. They also look forward to the high stakes Confederations Cup playoff between USA and Mexico on October 9th in California, and what the future holds for this Jamaica squad.
In the second segment we head out west to Denver, Colorado, the center of the USA soccer world for the next week. Greg sits down with MLS legend and Chipotle MLS Homegrown head coach Landon Donovan to talk coaching. Greg also attempts to stump Landon on some MLS coaching trivia, and get the inside scoop on his pregame speech.
In the final segment Arielle joins Greg to talk about all the AT&T All-Star festivities and of course the match itself. Can Tottenham handle the travel, altitude, and weather to hang with this group of All-Stars? And is a skills competition instead of a full match in the cards for the future? Plus review of the Capital Cites and Aloe Blacc concerts and the “Overall” MVP of the week.
