Ep. 121 - Declaration of Indendent w/ Chris Kessell & Dan Vaughn

Season 3, Episode 121,  Jul 14, 2021, 05:56 PM

We look to the lower divisions in Episode 121 where Greggo and TK are joined by our partner at Protagonist Soccer Dan Vaughn, and noted West Virginia Youth Coach and former US Soccer VP Candidate Chris Kessell!
We start off by recapping the Copa America Finals that finally saw Lionel Messi win his first ever international trophy with Argentina, beating Brasil IN BRASIL, and how this win reinforces the supposed GOAT labeling over Messi's career and how deeply he misses Neymar based on their postgame embrace that got the Tweeters chirping!
We then go into the Euro Final between Italy and England that saw England go full England in the worst of ways- breaking the gates at Wembley, losing the final on PKs, and then stirring up loads of racial abuse towards the three players that missed their PK tries- Marcus Rashford, Jaden Sancho, and Buyako Saka.
Oh and Italy won.
In the second half of the show, Chris and Dan educate us about the NISA Independent Cup- which recently went underway, and the benefits to the competition in the overall landscape in the US soccer landscape and more in the 2UP/2Down wrap up!
You can catch the NISA Independent Cup on Eleven Sports here!
