On this episode of Soccer 2 the MAX, Sean Garmer, Erik Watkins and Rachael McKriger discuss the final Tournament of Nations game for the U.S. Women's National Team. A 3-0 win over Japan, which wasn't as easy as it looked. Who stood out? Did anyone's stock rise or fall going forward for the national team? Why does Rachael still have a bone to pick with Jill Ellis?
After that, Rachael heads out, and the boys stick around to discuss the MLS All-Star game. What did we think of the festivities, the game, and is it a big deal that MLS took Real Madrid to penalties?
Finally, the guys discuss some MLS transfer news, and have a conversation on Promotion and Relegation in U.S. Soccer.
