Extratime: USMNT jump into Nations League, Pablo Mastroeni checks in

As Andrew Wiebe heads to marital bliss, Bobby Warshaw and Susannah Collins take the reins for this version of Extratime driven by Continental. Former US national team midfielder and Colorado Rapids player and coach Pablo Mastroeni joins the studio crew to detail how he would prepare for a playoff game, who are his picks for success in the Audi 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs and let us all know what he has been up to!

USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter talks with Bobby about why he settles on his version of style of play, how to know when a young player is ready to make the jump to the national team, and previews the Concacaf Nations League matchups with Cuba and Canada.

And the Total Soccer Show guys talked with Bobby and Susannah to preview how they would approach Cuba, what they are looking forward to seeing from USMNT, and what would be considered success in this round of games.
