What's up Internet? Today on Last Word SC Radio, we're talking everything Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Final 2017. Here's everything you need to know going into Wednesday night's final.
Matt and Dan sit down to talk about Sporting KC and New York Red Bulls are going to do in the match. We talk about how the Head Coaches approached their weekend matches and why we'll see first choice Staring XIs on Wednesday. We discuss the tactics of the game and why this final will be more about execution than wrinkles or one side trying to out-fox the other. The guys also discuss legacy: one team is looking to add to theirs while the other is looking for a referendum on previous failures.
We finish off making predictions and telling you how you can follow the action all night long.
