Extratime: Gold Cup haters, this rant is for you! Breaking down US-Curacao

Listen to the latest episode:

In this episode, Andrew Wiebe, Charlie Davies, Matt Doyle and Calen Carr praise the soccer gods. Why? The MLS All-Star Skills Challenge presented by Target is back … and backed by the F2Freestylers. Who has skills for days and got snubbed? What alternative skill games would capture the world’s attention?

Oh, and lots of soccer talk is coming your way as well. First up, why did the USMNT look so underwhelming against Curacao? What went wrong and what can be fixed against Jamaica in the Gold Cup semis? How should Canada respond to another devastating loss? What does Andrew have to say to everyone calling the Gold Cup a waste of time? EPIC RANT.

Also in this episode … MLS teams below the playoff line who are going to climb, the Earthquakes and Matias Almeyda are on to something special and Frank De Boer says Pity Martinez was a “danger” to Atlanta United.
