It's almost time for kickoff in Edmonton and World Cup fever has finally hit the ETR studio. Caitlin Murray of The Guardian and Soccer by Ives joins the crew to preview the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada. She breaks down the favorites, dark horses, stars to watch, and all your Canada/USA inside scoop. Plus the guys look forward to the US U-20 and USMNT's upcoming matches, and Simon attempts to derail David’s Gedion Zelalem hype train.
In the mailbag, the D.C. United fans sink their claws (Talons) into Simon for consistently picking against them. Beware: the only thing worse than Simon picking against you may be if he picks your team to win.
