Soccer 2 the MAX: 2018 SheBelieves Cup Preview, NASL Cancels Season, 2026 World Cup Bid Issues

February 28th, 2018

On this episode of Soccer 2 the MAX, Sean Garmer, Erik Watkins, and Rachael McKriger have plenty to discuss on the eve of American soccer getting back into full swing. 

They begin by giving some relaxed thoughts on the USSF Presidential Election. After that, they transition into talking about the NASL canceling their season. Does this mean the league's entire viability is in jeopardy? Was this really about the lawsuit? Or did NASL dig their own grave with this?

The trio also talks about the season-ending ACL injury to Jordan Morris. Rachael talks about how big of a loss it is for the Seattle Sounders, as they are about to embark on yet another MLS season. Then, they cover MLS Live merging into ESPN Plus and changes coming to the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup too. 

Finally, they discuss the NWSL Season schedule and preview the 2018 SheBelieves Cup. Why does Rachael feel the U.S. Women's National Team may not come away winners this year either? And are there some problems with the roster? Lastly, they get into the discussion on the latest concerning the 2026 World Cup bid. Could North America really lose out to Morocco?
