Philadelphia Union's Mark McKenzie on Champions League dreams, voting & more | Extratime

Mark McKenzie dreams of the Champions League, World Cups and playing against the game’s best players. He’s got what it takes to get there, and Andrew and Charlie chat with the Philadelphia Union man about his present and future, a mentally challenging 2019, what voting and the upcoming election means to him and Brenden Aaronson’s rumored move to Red Bull Salzburg.

Oh, and Caden Clark bagged another banger! How should the Red Bulls usher the 17-year-old along? Plus, with more games postponed because of COVID-19, how might that affect playoff qualification? Andrew explains how he’d keep things fair, using points per game and minimum games played, then Charlie goes in on the Galaxy after yet another poor performance.
