Last Word SC: Concacaf Nations League Preview, USMNT, MLS Roundtable

Is this the best form the United States player pool has ever been in? What does that mean for expectations given what Gregg Berhalter’s been doing ahead of Copa America? What’s going on with El Tri? Can the Reggae Boyz finally get over the hump? Does Panama have a chance? Also what do we think of Canada and Costa Rica in the Copa America playoff games? We discuss all this and more.

In the Round Table, we discuss the biggest stories from the first month of the MLS season and do Nations League Pick ‘Ems.

About the Hosts:

Matt Pollard is the former Managing Editor of Last Word on Soccer, current author, and an engineer. When he’s not watching soccer or at work, the Colorado transplant enjoys skiing and hiking all over the state. The LA Kings will always be his first sports love, though MLS didn’t exist at the time. Once called the Shakespeare of LWOS, he covers the LA Galaxy and Colorado Rapids. Like the Galaxy, he too was handcrafted in LA.

Rachael Kriger is a Senior Editor at Last Word on Soccer. She is the lead writer for the Seattle Sounders, U.S. Women’s National Team and NWSL. Hailing from Moscow, Russia, she resides in Ocala, Florida, where she is a youth minister. Rachael is a big fan of her home country’s national teams and cried when Russia beat Spain in the World Cup Round of 16. However, Rachael has to admit that basketball was her first love and still keeps in contact with that sport through coaching.

Daniel Sperry is an Editor at Last Word on Soccer. He covers mainly Sporting KC and U.S. Soccer for LWOS and discusses San Francisco Giants baseball elsewhere. He was born and raised in Northern California, hence his love for Bay Area teams. He currently resides in the KC Suburbs with his incredible wife and energetic puppy. Outside of sports and writing, he loves a good stout and nature, whether that is hiking, camping, canoeing, birding, or some activity with all four.

Harvey Cruz is a staff writer at Last Word. He covers the New York Red Bulls. Born in New Jersey, where all the fun weather is at. Taylor ham or pork roll, he doesn’t care because it’s Bacon-Egg & Cheese for life. Your playoff heartbreaks don’t compare. But it’s okay, because you’ll likely never meet another Harvey in your life. Unique.
