You get respect respect dreadful. Not only give it. Where the first goal. He was dreadful. Don't see bellies and it was. It was a bad game. They didn't play well at all finland where we're organized aggressive enough attention of is true. The only good thing about franz he's mattress making his debut twenty years and heating the bar. That's what i did. And then he missed the beach but he'd the boswell twelve years after his dad's last cup one hundred and forty second cap by the way steve manda was playing for france. When lydia trump plays game and spring for france when martha stewart played his first game. Which i think is really cool.

If portugal keeps playing and dora every month then he could probably break christine sinclair's record by the time he's what forty forty four forty five tremendous achievement christine sinclair. Who by the way. I don't even think she's retired yet so she could. She could add a few more than ninety six cops. Cristiano played one half. I think it was probably a bit noise time but load manager. Don't want christiano. you'll get your goals. Plenty of excitement generated in the past forty eight hours by talk of neymar for rinaldo swap. Leonardo saying he'd welcome christiano. Maybe he was misquoted. He on a context. I don't know jewels. What's the story. Put this in order for us. Yeah now roads for the website about name. He wants to stay in power as psg wants to keep him talking about an extension and six neymar that came from there was also going some social interventions united and maybe even to madrid. I don't know the name run on swap. He's not going to happen. This is pretty clear while another set about. We're not which i guess is interesting. He said he was. You don't know what happens if anything can happen. Said maybe tomorrow christina will workup and said you know what i want to move on from events. I want to go into another club. How many clubs can afford him right. Now it's a very small circle of clubs he can buy from the qataris and then those job maybe happening is again just lifted on this. It's all about contracts. The contract at it expires in june. Twenty twenty two so obviously. This is when you start this same exactly. Exactly exactly not put his appeal against the italian f.a.s.t. Decision to doug them a point and having them losing that game three neil events last month was rejected. You expected this and is a big deal. i thought the extra point penalty was a bit unnecessary dr the point because he didn't show up. The argument is that they never had any intention of going or you recall local health authority. I had initially said that they needed to stay. But then data full investigation. This is complicated looking at the evidence really sift through find online. You can kind of see why napalese appeal was rejected. It's a complicated story. It's not waste ten minute. Let's talk about spain and holland instead. They drew one one in their friendly. Jewish i know you wanna show love frank de boer. He's the worst. 'cause i was gonna say worse coach coaching politician. He's the worst course. Maybe into milan history. And you've had some bad ones and second spell or third smell and now. He's the worst coach in in netherlands. History because no one has ever started as badly as he has with the national team but he did wonders atlanta united. And did he no no. It might even be you know you might. You might even be utterances trevor. Four and he's just about good. I don't even know what we're wondering. If he's any good or just bad picking on him picking on him. Kumana put something in place whether or not they were playing much better. That we're doing much better. The guy arrives throws everything you wear now the back to back to square one where there were two years ago four years ago. It's ridiculous getting. We're lucky to draw by the way against in that game. Sergio ramos one is one hundred and seventy six cap which she's equity jibril funds for the most european player with as many carbs Sue players has more now the record autumn man's records. He's hasanov egypt one hundred and eighty four. He's going to break that as well right. Yeah i think it's pretty much a dead certainty. That ramos is going to break. Tell you what's it's phenomenal achievements. Incredible look over your shoulder. Because who's coming behind us got. Maybe i think he's got like one hundred sixty seven hundred sixty nine tonight that it's cristiano renaldo so i could seek he's done orlando saying i will retire from the national football as number one in men's a number one in another one in gosport imagine belgian beatriz one jewels to meet. Try and k the batsman. I love when people give themselves nicknames. I love my msci these good performance so horrible first half by belgium who down. They're going to go down because of bone out. Who was the second cabinet. There was no changes that were martinez did. I don't think really playing in the best position but anyway talk about the batsman. The bosnian thirty two caps he is lethal is lethal with belgium again. Where he goes though because remember lukaku is usually the starter but really good. Second half much better. I mean when tillman's comes on plays like that. It's so much easier for for belgium. Switzerland with that body told in the second half bedroom again massively and shall we was really clinical in the two two goes good on them for the game against england. The weekends hop shreds tops fits easily beat tunisia four. Nil gab. the played a bunch of kids and fringe players. And even better martini. Day was a home. In self-isolation yeah the poor guy. That's a positive so we had will kick revived. Was technically the manager by mancini's old powell and mind gianluca vialli on the silent. His big crazy awesome seeing him the text exchange after the game. He had fun because it is big. Sort of sam allardyce style. European mancini was at home watching on tv giving instructions.

The League sponsor was very br very present and US national team had sent along the World Cup trophies for for fans to look at and take photos with so there's a little bit of something for for everyone and so what happened at the game. A lot of US walking into that stadium kind of knew that North Carolina was probably going to do what North Carolina does which which is when games on the other side will put in one early goal from Dubina. Who Eventually won the championship? Mvp Award their midfield just completely dominated and they got three more goals from three US national team players.

"Probably the, the player that people know the least about she's the right back. So the doors. He's been there for a long time as a centreback partner for Buchanan, and Ashley Laurence do pecan in Lawrence each of them almost have one hundred caps and their twenty three and twenty four respectively and going some you can legit. So is your we? We always talk about that. The blue check Mark of excellence or whatever you got for playing for the own as good as Buchanan is she doesn't play for Lille because she's in the Champions League. Anyway. She's the third centerback. And you've only play with two so she's legit. Yeah. So good. That's what I'm saying to me. If, if the Dutch front three does it against this Canada then? Right. Then we got our side believe unbeliev your elite. Yeah. But if you don't you haven't proven to me yet, your elite. Well, it come the con- conversation is he's got the better front three of the United States or Netherlands, or we're going to find out a little bit warmer. Decision based off of this on how they do against this back four. I also we've kinda hinted at this before, but, you know, Canada's defense, I yes. A lot of their tax still revolves around Christine Sinclair, but these young players, your gene becky's Michelle prints Jesse Fleming's the players that Canada made an early investment in after twenty fifteen I think a lot of those players were involved in the in the bronze medal in two thousand sixteen those players are playing starting to play. Well, right now they starting to find their rhythm, especially against New Zealand, and I can tell by the look that you're giving me that you don't agree. Now, I think these player, I think, Jesse thumbing. I think she's special. I think the rest of them are good role players. Okay. I think Sinclair's like unbelievable. But yeah, no, I think Fleming's only one there that I'm like the other ones and product. Okay. Yeah. Speed, right. But product lacking on a consistent basis, one name we haven't mentioned for candidates, their goalie Steph obey or maybe we have. Yes, she's kind got a lot better. So I guess that's the only other thing is like in the same way that we talked about England, you know, England and get really tested through the group stage. I think Canada will be tested. Tomorrow by this Dutch attack. I think it's a big match for la-. Like I I'm very familiar with her because she was at the Washington spirit for a while. She was a very good goalie. But there were some moments of trepidation weakness coming out in the air that I had bad decision may, yes. For a long. Yes, especially Olympic qualifying a couple of years ago. I'm like, ooh, the twenty six. Tournament. Right. Staying at three LeBlanc and I'm like Goldie and she's like she's getting better, like she's learning. And she has she wouldn't plays for a men's team little bit member. Yes. She's got a contract. And then and then he's replacing Aaron McCloud to who had been there. Like people don't know that she'd been there forever. Her decision making has gotten a lot better on when to come out. I mean that's really been her biggest weakness is off crosses, and service flighted spite its service in the box. She is hyper aggressive trying to make a name for herself. And a lot of times would either get like hit in disrupted on our past the ball which impeded her ability to accurately punch it out, or in a way that didn't allow a second shot or she'd miss a completely, and she's gotten a lot better at that. And that's important because we're a team. That's so good defensively, in the back four if a team can't sell that they're going to start flooding balls in the box, especially if they get impatient. And so they need a goalkeeper that has sound decision making..

I think audio chair or your door Alistair. That's you that it's my chip because I'm very Fatman. So. It's the creaky. Thank you. Tell us about Gary woodland. I will he is. He's that well known outside of Gulf cycles. He's an American who has been a professional for over a decade. He's only had three toll wins in time. Do you have a once come in the top ten at a major championship? But with three of the full rounds complete he has got this one shot lead, and the best shot his ever had of winning any major title, just one behind is Justin Rose, the Englishman of previous winner here and the only man within three shots. And hey prefers not to be the front runner. One back gives me that freedom to, to feel like of everything to, to gain nothing to lose. It's always a position that it's it doesn't mean I have to produce the day any differently. If I was one ahead, I'm close enough to go out and build. My plan Bill around the Gulf, make no predictions tonight on what tomorrow is gonna feel like this assessment in the morning and combined better spot. Android McElroy Louise tastes, and, and reigning champion Brooks role within five shots, so they will still in with an outside chance to return to the cricket World Cup where the most highly anticipated match of the tournament takes place. Always due to take place in a few hours time when India take on Pakistan. We've heard how much it's being hyped up on the Indian subcontinent is massive deal. Isn't it? It is the observer newspaper here in the UK is calling the world's most politically charged and intense sporting Dhabi. It's hard to argue with that it's expected one billion people going to watch this match three quarters of a million people applied to get ticket for the Old Trafford Cricket Ground, which only holds twenty five thousand Pakistan's, second bottom in this ten team group could still make the semi finals in the are in fourth place. And of course on top four go into the semi. So this is a big match in terms of steak on the pitch. But to the fans this batch pretty much as important as a final would be and in football. The knockout phase of the women's World Cup is starting to take shape yet. We know eight of the sixteen teams he'll be going into the knockout phase, Netherlands and Canada, both winning on Saturday to guarantee their place with one group stage remaining for Canada. This is only the second time they've made it out of the group face his star player Christine Sinclair as we move on in the tournament the game you're going. It more difficult. The chances are gonna become fewer and far between and.

"She played two thousands like into two thousand as kind of the end of her career with Canada, the second voice, you'll hear is Kaelin Kyle. She won a bronze medal with Candan twenty twelve just finished her playing career maybe like a year ago played for a bunch of teams across the end of the last voice of here's Diana Matheson, who's currently still playing for the Utah royals no longer with Canada. But one bronze with Canada in the two thousand twelve Olympics and the twenty sixteen Olympic. So here's the panel from TSN just after the US finish that thirteen nothing victory over Thailand. And the United States did exactly what we thought they would do in their opener. They blew away Thailand. But it was the way in which they did it, which is now, sparking headlines and Clara loved what you said, if you were going to blow away a team do it with humility, and they did not Meghan. Re Pino has scored countless goals on the international stage. She was celebrating like she had her first week and understand if it was the first goal like Mallory Pugh. But when you're Alex Morgan, too, and you're counting your goals. It was just unacceptable. I understand there's a goal differential race. And this I understand they're nervous about drawing Sweden later in the tournament. But. This was disgraceful. It from the United States, I would have hoped they could have won with ability in grace, but celebrating goals, eight nine ten the way they were doing is really necessary. I'm all about passion. And I think as a Canadian we would just never ever think of doing something like that we played against the Americans before where you have a player Christine Sinclair, scoring three goals, and she would never even think about counting how many goals she has on one hand for me. It's disrespectful. It's disgraceful. I just hats off to Thailand for holding their head high mean their first time on a World Cup stage. I'd love to be there to just hug them all. Yeah, the US is fully capable of blowing out teams. And of course in the World Cup. You're not going to hold back and maybe they have an internal target. They wanna meet or trying to break the record, but I mean it embarrasses the word for Jill Ellis. I think the way she was leading her team in this wall. So we'll walk to unpack. Neutral segment. Yeah. Right. I mean, we just when you hear it, what's your reaction? I wasn't surprised. It was Canadian television. And I wasn't surprised that it was Canadian players, former and Dina Matheson, the last one, you spoke, I thought did it in a way that was cerebral and not emotional. I think Dynamex Asan would have been in the World Cup. She got injured recently and wasn't able to make it back in time..

"Did you see that at the beach sun is out summertime? Good times. All right. Adam Jones, coming up at forty pass we're open between now and then one eight zero zero six three six eight six eight six go ahead and take advantage of that. If you joining us late, we've already covered Kevin Durant, and the latest air. My thoughts. I shared it with you on top of that. I'm still trying to get to the US open Brooks kept guy, get nice Malik. This guy more and more every single day. And he is running on some high premium fuel is still yet. There was a promo of the event. It did not include him. Why would you want include Brooks Kapka in the US open? Promo. What's he ever done around there? So he took note Dell worked its way back to him. He is a major fuel guy. You knew it, would we talked about that we had Kamar rocker on. He's a pitcher for Vanderbilt. He threw a no hitter any struck out, nineteen guys Harrison Smith came on last hour, we talked about smack off, it's another kind of silver anniversary conversion do you want to celebrate? But that hasn't stopped you clones. But I gave you what you want twenty-five years ago. Now, owes went with done without we covered it your riot favor. Did a great interview if the Jim Rome podcast, but trying to get to that it's alive. Listen to it after the show now there are a lot of things that happen in sports and pop culture. Both where I know you're waiting for me to give you my take. You know, when I did my keynote speech at the talkers twenty nine thousand nine convention, one of the topics of that speech is, how do you inform the informed, you know, it's like back in the day before there was social media before, there was an internet before information traveled as quickly as it. Did you really had to wait for people like me to give you my thoughts? Now it's all right there. You can get it as quickly as you want. I would still argue that if you want to be informed you need might take you need my thoughts. So I think when something happens in sports, or pop culture, that's really big in really transcendent. This is why you come here. In fact, this is kind of premise of the show. Right. I can give you something that you can't get anywhere else. You want my point of view point of views are not for sale. You can't just buy them. So I know this, I know this, and I know this about you, you want my take on the really big things in sports and pop culture. All right. That said this is also a big, big soccer house, you know that too, I want you or I know you all desperately want me to talk about what went down yesterday in World Cup group play. I know you need it. I know you want it. I know you've been waiting for two hours for me to talk about that thirteen nothing. Historical wax job that the US women put on Thailand yesterday. You've been waiting on that haven't you? Good news is you. No longer after wait here it is. I will talk about that. I wanna talk about that. In fact, I could not wait for the alarm to go off this morning. So I could roll out of the rack crack. Open the mic just to talk about that. For those of you who missed it that offending World Cup champion US women's national team beat the living hell out of Thailand yesterday thirteen nothing. No. I did not miss speak. No. That is not an error. No. That is not an onion headline. That is not a joke. The baddest soccer players on the planet. Straight murdered Thailand by a score of thirteen nothing. Alex Morgan went off. She scored five of the thirteen goals. Now, thirteen nothing sounds ludicrous in unheard of it's because it is it a never been done before until now until the US put their cleats on Thailand's throats and did not let up until stoppage-time was over in the ninety third minute whistle game history funeral thanks for coming Ron to Chile Sunday, except not so fast. Apparently, we are not onto Chile Sunday, not so fast US women's national team. Talking head hot take outrage nation would like to have a word with you. I about sportsmanship. It seems scoring thirteen goals on a bad team will having a really good time doing. It is not sitting well with everybody. To my take on that in a moment. But first, let's go north of the border to Canada and check in with the four person panel on. T. S. N. It's comprised of K Bernie's. Claire roost, add Kaelin Kyle. And Diane Mathison. Their unanimous. Outrage is almost as mind blowing is a thirteen nothing beat down in rural Cup play. Check this out if you were going to blow away a team. Do it with humility, and they did not Meghan, repeat. No has scored countless goals on the international stage. She was celebrating like she had her first, we can understand if it was the first goal like Mallory Pugh, but when you're Morgan, too, and you're counting your goals. It was just unacceptable. All I understand there's a goal differential race in this tournament. I understand they're nervous about drawing Sweden later in the tournament. But this was disgraceful. From the United States, I would have hoped they could have won with ability and grace, but celebrating goals, eight nine ten the way they were doing is really unnecessary. I'm all about passion. And I think as a Canadian we would just never ever think of doing something like that we played against the Americans before where you have a player Christine Sinclair, scoring three goals, and she would never even think about counting how many goals she has on one hand for me. It's disrespectful. It's disgraceful. I just hats off to Thailand for holding their head. Hi, their first time on a World Cup stage. I'd love to be there to just hug them all. Yeah, the US is fully capable of going teams. And of course in the World Cup. You're not going to hold back and maybe they have an internal target. They wanna meet or China break the record. But I mean embarrasses the word for jealous. I think the way she was leader team in this one. Damn canada. Check out the Royal mounted fun. Police why up there on their high horses? If you're scoring at home. Did you jot down any of those words, quote on acceptable disgraceful? Unnecessary disrespectful. Disgraceful. Again and embarrassing all of those adjectives. Strong adjectives in about ninety seconds time. It's just unacceptable. This is disgraceful. It from the United States. Really unnecessary disrespectful. It's disgraceful. Embarrasses the word for Gillette's. I think the way she was leading her team in this one. I don't know. I mean agree to really disagree here. We're talking about the freaking World Cup. I guess some NAFTA educate y'all in soccer. Again we're talking about the World Cup. Not some SO jamboree. There are parent tunnels. There aren't orange slices out here. There's no Capri sun, no matter how badly you want it. This is the highest level of international competition. It comes around once every four years. It is really hard to find the back in the net. No matter when and where you play there is no mercy rule. I guess I guess you could argue you should throttle down. I suppose, maybe not really. Understand this to best believe this Canada and anybody else who wants to take exception. What I'm about to say. If the US women were on the other side of that thirteen nothing to buy four, I would say the same thing and as for them celebrating after scoring goals as for Alex Morgan counting out her goals. I've got no issue with this play the damn era guitar on your leg if you want to go all brandy Chastain, if you need to I really don't care. Nothing's promised in sports, you know or they showing them up where they disrespecting the game. They're having a little fun there showing little bit of emotion. Like I said, you never know when you're gonna find the back of the net is specially in the World Cup in a lot of them only got on the pitch because of that blowout, they may not get that opportunity again. So they were able to not only score, but it's go on a big stage and you don't want somebody to celebrate that you don't want them to show any emotion, you don't want them to style that goal. No, I think I like what hetero Riley at say she played for the US women's national team back before she said, there's no better way to show respect to another team. Then keep playing your hardest damn straight like football. Taking a knee on somebody late is more humiliating than punching it in one more time. I mean that taking a neon somebody to me is more degrading than lining it up, and finishing the game implying it and pretty sure Thailand would rather have any team play a full ninety minutes against them. Then back off and start doling. Out, sympathy hugs as Kaelin Kyle suggested hats off to Thailand for holding their head high mean their first time on a World Cup stage. I'd love to be there to just hug them. All you tell me what's more degrading? You tell me what's more humiliating, the US national team playing the game hard until the end or the us national team and their coach coming over to give them hugs like eight year olds. It's the World Cup, not the world hug, the US women's team is the best squad on the planet. They did something yesterday that had never been done before. And so far from what I've gathered today. They're not apologizing for it, and nor should they. They don't have to stop playing. They don't have to give out hugs, and they don't have to listen to any of this either. It's not their fault. They're awesome. And the opposition wasn't. I'm not gonna put all this on Canada. But that broadcast did originate there it tell you what, why don't you worry about your group stage and we'll worry about ours? And if this comes back to bite, the US team in the ass, we will own that to just hope that you don't meet us along the way because the last time the US and Canada went at it, we bagel you in the Concha CAF Cup final. And from the looks of things the way, they're playing and from what you're saying, I would not be surprised if we're here to do that, again, not to hug, it out, notice notice that whenever these border skirmishes start. I'm usually trying to moderate, the entire thing and officiate and not take a side. I'm very good about that. However, when you come flying in here with words like embarrassing disgraceful. I got to say something in, it is athletic competition at the very highest level. And after say something else. Manifield scared to be a soccer authorities. I just love the beautiful game. Always have always will. It was just unacceptable. This is disgraceful from the United States. Really unnecessary disrespectful. It's disgraceful. Embarrasses. The word for Ellis. I think the way she was leading her team in this one. Wow. Bitter much take it easy..

"Coming up on the other side, I do I feel like I own apology to Pebble Beach the majestic place. It was once said by a friend of mine playing golf and Augusta national's like playing in church playing golf at Pebble Beach is like playing in heaven. Yeah. I'm going with that. It is going to be gorgeous down there chamber of commerce stuff. It's the United States Open, paulie. I'm not going to sit here and let you bad mouth, the United States of America. All right with me. In fact, we might want to get ready for this by playing the Canadian TV analysts crushing the US women's soccer team just to get you guys into a patriotic mood US. Women's soccer started their World Cup run in France with a thirteen nil win over Thailand and celebrated after every goal which angered the Canadian TV analysts who thought we were classless and disgraceful. Well, and here in fact is one minute long of Canada. TV ripping US women's soccer player after thirteen to nothing win. But it was the way in which they. Did it which is now sparking headlines and Clara love what you said, if you were going to blow away a team do it with humility, and they did not Meghan repeat who scored countless goals on the international stage. She was celebrating like she had her first, we can understand if it was a first goal like Mallory Pugh. But when you're Alex Morgan, too, and you're counting your goals. It was just unacceptable. I understand there's a goal differential, race in this turnament. I understand they're nervous drawing Sweden later in the tournament. But this was disgrace from the United States, I would have hoped they could have won with ability in grace, but celebrating goals, eight nine ten the way they were doing is really necessary. I'm all about passion. And I think as a Canadian we would just never ever think of doing something like that we played against the Americans before where you have a player Christine Sinclair, scoring three goals, and she would never even think about counting how many goals she has on one hand for me. It's disrespectful. It's disgraceful. I just hats off to Thailand for holding their head high mean their first time on a World Cup stage. I'd love to. There to just hug them. All. Since fully capable of going out teams. And of course in the World Cup. You're not going to hold back and maybe they have an internal target. They wanna meet or China break the record, but I mean, embarrasses the word for Jill Ellis. I think the way she was leading team in this one. All right. Well, we'll see if maybe they can look back on this tape and think differently because coming up next for them. They have the thirty ninth ranked Chileans. We got we got Toronto fans Charon katie's injury. We got Toronto, people yelling at Sonia and del Fatimid. How dare you Canadian women's soccer analyst telling us how to celebrate a couple of things on the Canadians. Real quick. Listen, it's time to it's time to expose candidate for what they really are. And we're from a guy that used used to like candidate prior to this year, that's over now, they say they want passion. How about passionately to- Canada to go blank themselves. And then on top of that. Yeah, what's next for, for the US team. Well how about another blow out? If you listen. You don't like to competition get a better goalie. Get a better defensive squad out there kick the. Ball out of your in whatever it takes get Dennis Leary on candidate Dennis Leary. I didn't know if I've been overdoing it without one. But think you and I are the ones who like it. You know, I stand with Dennis Leary. I don't like it say millennials get.

"So the Hannibal Lecter exactly the Hannibal Lecter mask, and so she would be an it'd be sightings ever at at the practices. She would be often aside field in the distance, but we couldn't get any closer and was she kicking the ball where she really practicing and all the holy up to this thing is with her sink. Would she player wooden? She plan. Finally a remember I was offered dinner. Some was we're in same restaurant is Caroline and her Italian entourage. And she paused in her smoking long to come over to me and say, I just like to tell you that she's going to play so that, okay. So that goes out so everybody sends out the message think is gonna play. But with all of his gamesmanship and stuff, they seem to have not actually paid any attention to France. And the French were in attendance at that point, it was a really good side, and they played Canada off the pitch. So candidates tournaments now done two games and they've still gonna play Nigeria the third that game against Nigeria is the most dispiriting sporting contests I have ever seen or attended because they were done. The team is emotionally. Shattered, and their coach abandoned. So, so the coach Marashi sat on the bench with their arms crossed, and the and the by language was entirely a it's not me. It's not me just abandon them. And, you know, and you came, I came to really like those women, and I do I still liked him. I think I, I think the great people, and I felt so awful. And I just was it was so gutting, absolute worst, and their enter coaches, imagine that being written off by coach and just kind of, you know, now my fault, I I'm a I'm the supreme tactics and they just did not follow orders. So you know that and that absolute bottoming out, and then you know, they hired John Herdman after that. And he came in with his kind of happy, go, lucky John Herdman, jordi- personality. And said, why are you guys play this game? You know do you do wanna play this game? Yeah. And he helped them rebuild emotionally. And you know, year later there in London there at the Olympics, and they win that bronze-medal it just as I've never seen anything as devastating as I saw. Twenty seven I've never been happier for athlete any athlete I've ever covered that I was for those women in twenty twelve God knows they got screwed against the Americans. But the fact that they came back after that even got that one that metal man I still it did it. Yeah. It brings a tear to my really does I because they're, they're great people, and they were wrecked. They were just wrecked, and I think, you know, God knows who might have quit and never played again. If if heard Manhattan, come along, and if they hadn't kinda found themselves again, and it's crazy that, that was eight years ago, and Christine Sinclair is now thirty six she's one of the last members of that team still playing the last, yeah. I think she's last of that thinks was Sophie Schmidt on that team. She might have been. So if he's still on the team, but that would be I think McLeod and, and Dinah mass and could have been but they're both hurt. But yeah, that she's the last of that generation for sure. So what is this World Cup for Canada that starts today? What does it for this team? What is it for Sinclair? Well, I it's not I don't think it's. The end for her she's gonna play next year. They presuming they qualify allies Sushil plan the Olympics next year and it would not shock me if she played another World Cup at age forty. I don't know that she couldn't. That's amazing. She asked her about it and cheap. She lives, she lives in Portland. She's, you know she plays for the professional team there, the thorns she's done a little bit of coaching. She's very much in the sport. But I don't. Yeah. I don't think this is the this is this one song, how much is this team hers compared to those twenty eleven teams as she still the heart of oh, yeah, yeah. Look, there's, there's some there's some other people who are important this team for sure. And there were other people on those teams who are important, but yeah, I think this is this a real young group and a very, very talented group. And I think she's, you know, she's kind of everything, right? She's the best player on the team still but she's, you know, the, the mentor the, the hero of, of a lot of the meal. You know, they think about again, ten years. Think of the age of some of these young women on this team. They were kids watching London, like London to me seems like yesterday. A lot of things seemed like yesterday to me, but that was the best part of those Olympics. When we won gold medals in those Olympics. But you remember anything more than that's offer team. I don't know. I remember where was watching that match? Yeah. For anybody listening. Stephen says, he's not a soccer guy less of a soccer guy. And I watched that match on soccer guy gets a cover soccer. So that's the best of all possible worlds. But yeah. Like, like Jean Becky or some of the, the, the women on this team like they would have been kids watching the game going. I want to be her. And, and it wasn't just the result. Right. It was that I just, you know, the righteous indignation ride the anger and the passion and her scoring three goals against the Americans. And you know, she's still mad about the referee. And I don't blame her like to me that it was the fighting spirit. You know it was the like if that's if that's a Canadian thing I'll take it. I'm quite happy to say, that's that is that is her. Canadian this coming up. What about her game now on the pitch? Chat aged thirty six to the best player on the team that age and she's closing in on on records now. Well, the cool thing is, is kind of how her game has evolved over time because, you know, in that game of big tall strong women running fast she could do that. She kind mirrors the sport, she can score. Obviously we like that's yeah, obviously, but she's she's got great vision on the field. You know, she's a great distributor. She can play behind the striker is a little bit of shift if needs be, and facilitate great IQ like a crazy, high football IQ. You know, she makes really good decisions and her skills on the ball are maybe not as not as flashy as Marta, or somebody like that, but she's really good on the ball. But I think, yeah, I would say the main thing is, you know, it's kind of Gretzky and right. She sees the game unfolding around her and makes really good decisions about where the ball's gonna go. How close is she to being considered the greatest of all time in this game as she in that conversation? Well, she should be, you know, she's three goals away from setting the all time scoring record and international saw. Male or female so happy, wombat colds that record the American who's retired and is like kind of the arch nemesis. If you're a Canadian or pretty much anybody else like ABBIE is a like a cartoon American, she's she sits on. She is on that pedestal. And you know, historically, there have been some Marta still playing Brazil. She's a great great player, everybody, you know, she's the one that people kind of going to go to for, who's the best player in the world women's player in the world is say, well, Martha isn't doesn't get listed at the top very much ends near run in the all time list in the current list, you would probably be listed fifth or sixth or seventh by a lot of people. But I think if you talked to a soccer a soccer person that women's soccer person, you know, she's on a what five best players of all time. She'd be on that list. I think she'd have to be I don't know. I think you'd be you would be crazy not to put her on on that point on the list in terms of Canadian athletes. And this is my own personal crusade. But again, I think hockey players aside because we got a lot of them. She's one of the five greatest, Canadian athletes of all time, male or female, like who else is on that list, Steve. Nash, no sprinters. Donovan Bailey depending, whether you put bent on and on I, always put on, but some people don't some swimmers, but she's yes, she's right there. How does this team stack up at the World Cup compared to pass it rations? We've had two bronze medals now in a row at the Olympics. Yeah. The Olympics are, yeah. The reason to think that this one this could be more it, you know the team you know we had the World Cup right? We hosted and they got to the knock around they lost to England. It was an okay result. Wasn't a great result. I didn't think on, on home soil that was kind of a transitional team. This is more fully. You know, that, that the Transition's really happened now they've got a bit of a tricky draw, you know, that like the Netherlands is really an up and coming side and the and they're in their group. We've got New Zealand and they've got Cameroon so you know, they, they should get out of the group. I think that like the Dutcher excited, a lot of people like and I've got some really exciting players. Again, a soccer country kinda, right? Women's soccer late a lot of ways if it breaks, right? They have been lost a match since last fall Canada hasn't that was to the Americans. You know, kind of depends on how the how the draw halls after they get out of that bring, you know, presumably, get out of the group stage, but they have their very talented. They're playing with a ton of confidence right now as a unit, I think there there as you know, is what Christine set were really good. You know that was her. That was her wild overstatement where we're really good. I think they're really good. They would need some breaks, but they'll get into the knockout rounds and then it kind of depends on who they stack up against by you know, I just love to see him the American somehow just just beat the Americans in a knockout game, you know, like I don't care where it comes. Yeah. And then may end sink maybe break Abby wombats record right in the same game. That would be that'd be great outcome. The.

I'm Jordan heath Rawlings. And this is the big story Canada's first game and the women's World Cup comes today against Cameroon. So we figured it was time to talk to Stephen brunt of sports net was covered these World Cups for years, Stephen start with just who is Christine Sinclair, where did she come from? What's her origin story? Well, she's from the lower mainland BC. She comes from soccer playing family her to her uncle's played professionally with the Portland at an earlier incarnation of the Portland timbers her dad played. She played as a kid, and, you know, she played other sports as well. But as a was a prodigy Ritchie cows, cap for Canada as a sixteen year old, it does astounds me how, you know, we're, we're talking about the early days of the sport in the country, like candidate didn't have a women's national team till nineteen Eighty-six. Yeah, yes. She played in the ninety five world or the ninety four World Cup. Right. Those game lake back. Then it was if people are soccer people. They will understand what I'm saying. Here's like old time, English soccer like vertical. So. Correct. Big kick, it down the field and the strongest and tallest and fittest would run underneath it, it was dominated by countries that could do that played that way. But it was also dominated by countries that put money into women's sport before other countries did, which is a pattern we've seen a lot, right? Like early success in Olympic women's rowing, for instance, was because we invested in it in nineteen nothing away from those great athletes, but we got on that bandwagon before a lot of other countries said in soccer even a lot of traditional soccer countries declined to invest in the women's game. There was a level of chauvinism in the in the soccer cultures so that, you know, the Brazil's and the Spain's and the Italy's they, they didn't do anything women's soccer, but Germany, did and Norway and Sweden did and we did to a degree. We were we were kind of early adapters in terms of women's soccer and the Americans did after title. Nine rank title nine was huge right into created opportunities for for collegiate athletes. So those were the countries that dominated early and but that was what they was a power game. You know power game of fitness game. And you know in assize game really strength game. How did Christine Sinclair make her Mark on that game on this team? When did she come to one to Candida notice her, I would think I guess the U twenty tournament gonna remember sales change. They change it from nineteen to twenty remediate offered was the tournament in Edmonton, where the golden generation, they, they got to the finals loss to the Americans, a recurring theme here, but played in front of forty thousand plus people in Edmonton to Commonwealth stadium too big TV ratings, so Kara Lang, and most Creedy and, and sink. You know, we're part of that team and his golden generation of Canadian women country embrace them in a way that it hadn't I don't think it'd embrace the soccer team male or female before we men's team that you know got the World Cup and eighty six and they won the Gold Cup and under Hoeger, but I don't think candidate had ever cared about soccer as much as they cared about that team that played in Edmonton. So that was kind of her debut for the Comanche was the most valuable player high-score most valuable player in that tournament. So, you know, and then she joined the national where she played for the national team and. After that, again, with people like Charmaine Hooper, who is a great athlete in her own, right. And the they, you know, they have a fourth place finish the World Cup people then forget that, that they, they did finish fourth, but, you know, I think what really started to put things on the map was what, what came later and end know and the evolution of the of the game and the pollution of the players will it's kind of a chicken or the egg situation because you had Christine Sinclair in his golden generation that kind of took over that team and dragged it in front of everybody watching. And then once you know that it can do good TV ratings, and people are really going to care. It becomes a lot easier to recruit talent bring on sponsors, and all the rest of it that puts you a little bit further ahead. Yeah. In parallel to that. The game is getting more sophisticated evolving, or changing in, in a way that soccer people found pleasing like I was kind of separate myself because I've covered soccer for a long time. But I you know, soccer people I was considered me an outsider. So I, I always kind of separate myself, but that the people who would kind of disdain women's football women. Soccer started to see the ball being played on the ground. More you know more of a passing game as a more sophisticated version of the game and started to kind of give it its due. So those things happen at the same time one is that. Yeah, you have golden generation of Canadian players coming through who had succeeded on stage, a very popular stage, anyway. And at the same time, you had women's soccer getting new respect, of course, you had that explosion with the Americans right where, you know, brandy Chastain and all of that. You know, it became a big deal in the United States. Yes. Also, the breakthrough from American soccer, you know, if you think about it, the US men's national team was pretty good for a long time. But what was the breakthrough for soccer in the US? It was the women you absolutely the women describe that scene because you probably, it's probably embedded in your memory of brandy Chastain. And that's the only thing I remember that time. Yeah, we scored the winning goal and, and stripped off her jersey was wearing a sports bra and had like an eight-pack ill. She's absolutely ripped. Right. Looks like I think it was it was a moment of empowerment for a whole bunch of. People. And I think for a whole bunch of young girls watching it was, I wanna be her. Yeah. I wanna play that game because it was, you know, it wasn't dainty. It was ferocious. It was competitive. It was passionate there were. And there are a lot of great things about women's soccer. Well, and in Canada. It's the women are better. They have men's team and it by an order of magnitude. We could qualify that say the pool shallower again. We were earlier that there is. We, we probably put more emphasis on what you see now is that, you know, England's good now in the Nederlands is getting good is against some of these other soccer countries are kind of saying, hang on, we'll Spain suddenly pretty good. But yeah, I think in Canada, they had the success and be, I think people did start the kind of tune into the fact that someone who might be the best player in the world play for us. So tell me about her that because you've covered her for while now what is Sinclair, like she's known, at least to me and casual observers for being pretty closed off. Oh, yeah. You mean per as a person as a person as an athlete? How, how is she what drives her she's super shy? She doesn't like doing interviews a drink press stuff. If you talk to her teammates tell you, she's not shy that she got a great sense of humor, which she does. But she just just playing that the public role. I remember once I went down to interview her when I was still the globe and mail. She was playing for the, the western New York flash. Again, you know, the leagues have come and gone. Right. But one of those down near buffalo somewhere, and they having an open workout for kids. And I was driving down from the globe. And I'd set it up through Canadian soccer to do this interview I think goes before the twenty seven World Cup. So it looks a low pressure environment is what I'm saying, and it's going to be a nice story and I got stuck in a little bit of traffic at the border. So I got there about three minutes before the interview was supposed to happen. But I was, you know, phony, people telling you, look, I'm coming, right? Look, she was in her car, and she was going to leave. She was honored. I almost had to throw myself in front of her car because she didn't want to do it. She just didn't want to do the interview, and it was, you know, as an awkward interview, and there wasn't much to it, and I've been persistent, I guess with her to try and get a little bit. And I have huge Marijn for as an athlete. So maybe that's part of it as well. But yeah, she's never going to be somebody who talks and soundbite. She's never going to be somebody who kind of thrown horn. It's just not in her. She's, you know, again, MBA seen her. She is a passionate ferocious competitor. And she does have a sense of humor, but it's hard to get past, you know, the veneer, sometimes why did you work so hard to get past that veneer? You know, I think a lot of it goes back to that twenty eleven World Cup which I'm sure we're gonna talk about. But I covered the tell me about the twenty eleven World Cup. You know, key so candidate went into Germany twenty seven World Cup is in Germany and Canada. There's a sense that candidate could be competitive in this turnament, sorta like now, you maybe none, as they maybe expectations weren't quite where they are now but they were pretty darn high. And that was the, you know, the, the moment for that golden generation of players. Right side from Carlisle, who got hurt that, that was that group this, and this was there, a moment and Canada had hired an Italian to coach the team. Caroliina Mirage, and the whole idea was that this was the country's, there's, like finishing school that she was going to teach them more sophisticated tactics and European training methods and this is gonna turn us into a footballing nation rather than soccer h nerve footballing team rather than a soccer team. And Caroline was an interesting like a character from fiction, you know, and they had this whole group of Italian trainers in the system coaches, and there was much intense talk and smoking cigarettes. And speaking of Italian, and she took them off to a training camp. They went to some hotel in, in the mountains in Italy. And we're locked off by themselves and trained and all of this, when you talk to them after the facts, you know. So it sounds like a prison camp. But it sounds nice now but it wasn't fun. But they all say the right stuff that okay, we're gonna we're gonna we're gonna we're way. Better way. More sophisticated. We're gonna play you know, we're we're going to our game has she is we have learned enormous amounts Mer. The opening game is against Germany in Berlin at the Olympic stadium. They know they're going to lose that game. Everybody knows he'll lose that game but they, you know, they compete and sink scores. A goal on a on a free kick. I think not a penalty free kick, but she also gets hit in the nose and breaks her nose spewing blood. And it was real was, you know in this there goes the tournament. Right. So so caroliina Marashi again, who is she was very much into intrigue in whispered conversations? I'm covering this for the globe. And for sports that we were the rights holders I was as close to any team. I think as I've ever been and there's been there. Many whispered conversations was she going to play and they wouldn't let her talk to the media, and she was. Wearing this like the mass that basketball players wherever they break their now.

"I know one specifically that I've seen a lot of is there number ten. So you think Argentine number ten should be printed, right? Has to find you buzney. She's played in the N W sell for, for few years on and off, again, with the Washington spirit. She's a very talented player like she'll she will definitely catch your eye at times. I don't think she's really got too much around or her or enough to to threaten this Japanese team. But I think Argentina's, one of these interesting stories that will be happy to see for a first time, right? You're going to see some creative skillful play individually is just a matter of collectively what they can put together, as well as their fitness level, because they haven't been exposed to this high level of performance on a continual basis. A lot of play football put Saul Benitez is a football star. You'll see her police, John. She can play up top, or wide on the striker Luxa competence. I think she wins like a free styling competitions all the time. Also, she's very talented on the ball. So it's gonna be fun to watch the individual talent Kyle, if it can be expressed but Japan will easily win this game. Sorry, I misspoke Argentina making their first World Cup appearance. Since two thousand seven g lays the South American debutante that I was thinking of their this other game in the group is Canada and Cameroon and candidate for me feels a lot like Japan another. Well, another team that's floating a little bit under the radar a team that if you look back in the last two Olympics has. Has won bronze twice. That's not a small accomplishment. I think that's worth noting in just the general progression of the Canadian women's program. They seem to be a team that is in the other kind of opposite end of that generational rebirth. They're kind of like hanging onto a few of the old veterans they've done a nice job, bringing in some young talent this Canadian team. But they're really still built around the players that were the faces. I think of the team that hosted in two thousand fifteen. Yeah. Yeah. I mean they're first of all, they are organized around defense. They've played nine games this year to against top ten opponents in Sweden and England they've only given up one goal against them, right? They have five wins and four draws in. I'm not saying it's gonna be a thrilling game. It was hero zero right for a lot of those ties. So they don't put up a ton of goals. But if they're going to put up goals, it's all gonna come down to one of the best players in, strikers that has ever played, and she would be a household name issue, did not play from Canada. And if she played the United States, and that's Christine Sinclair, who is chasing, Abby Wambach most goals ever. She's five behind her. I believe I think she's at one hundred seventy nine at this point that's exciting to watch. Sinclair is one of a few players here that I look back at kind of like the veterans like desert Scott. So if you Schmidt, Melissa Chapman's, they're right back has been there for a while. Even they're younger players like the door. Ski zadora. She's kind of like a veteran at this point. She's been there for a while. Even some of the younger players could issue you Buchanan has been there for a while lockdown. Centreback Ashley Laurence enough credit. She's a consistent performer. She plays for PS g she's good. Excellent won't be one defender. That's what you have you have what those, those players are young..

"So I agree with you, in everything except for this one pick right here. This is the third place team coming out of group, a this South Korea. I'm going to insert Nigeria. By the Swedish coach that led them to third kidding him on the last time around better defensively, pieces, a little dicey, but I'm gonna give it to them, even though south grade is very very good. That's one of those issues for me. But I'm gonna go with Austrailia who was so dominant and twenty eighteen but his currently leaking goals. So this is far as I haven't going, but I won't jump to that. Okay, japan. Canada has not lost a single game in twenty nine. Okay, good. Defensively are counting on defense wins championships maxim and Christine Sinclair so pan over there and so Germany Scotland Scotland up and coming team that's hard working has some world class players. But Germany is full of world class players one of the teams that can win this and to me, they have the easiest path to get into the knockout stages Gotland I'm gonna side do do. But it's Zarqa twenty fifteen. I like him. But. All right. And Sweden Netherlands, Netherlands, one, the euro, this team on the up amazing attacking talent offensively questions. Unlike Sweden, but I'm going to go with the Netherlands, adding in their fun to watch. I like it. All right. So let's skip over to the quarterfinals on my side. I am going to take England, of course, in my first semi-final sorry, quarterfinal. And then this is the match that everyone wants to see this will be the quarterfinal in Paris mind. You United States lost to France in January in France. Three to one, I don't think they're gonna lose twice to France in the same year. Although this is an excellent French team. I think they are going to crumble under the pressure, like they have every other time and I'm taking the United States of America typically, France. Let's go to your side states, mental monsters. All right. Ustralia Canada, this is where I think still yet has been overrated with the coaching change. I don't think they're solid in the back there slow in the back and I think Christensen Claire them, interesting them in there. I agree with you. This is where we totally. I got going like this. You think they're going like this, and Germany Netherlands, Germany's just so solid on the break on the press. They're going to be able to play pass the Netherlands quality front, three and set play. They dig struggle at euro two thousand seventeen others reason though, they're coming back, Steffi Jones gone. All right. And for the final going in. I think this is a great match up as well for the United States. It's another tough one. It comes as no surprise, even though I think, England is much improved. They keep running into these good teams in the semi-finals. They have the toughest route like that side of the bracket is incredibly difficult. Whoever created this in the continent as poss-. It was really tricky on that side on this side. Germy just has too much class. They're going to beat Germany. They're gonna canned excuse me. They're gonna go here and this the match. Yup. Don't you two thousand three? When we lost its every year. This is all the time to the best teams in the world in World Cup championship performers come up in big moments. And I am going to go with the United States. Detto say the US to take it all going through Germany. And as you might know the women's World Cup is not the only tournament happening this summer..

"Any gender you guys. And and so people ask me all the time. There's this actually this woman from Canada Christine Sinclair that. Yeah. She she will likely break my record within the next twelve months. And don't say anything Glennon because she's she's like, no, I don't wanna record. But the reality and the truth is, and I really drew. I really do believe this that especially women we are here to keep pushing each other. And if somebody breaks my record that means the game is better. That means the game is growing that means other people are achieving greater bigger heights than me. And that is the kind of legacy that I can actually wrap my mind around. And you can't find success unless you are willing to let it go. When it's over. Nice. I'm Chris tip it, and this is on being with Abby, Wambach and Glennon Doyle. And I feel it coming from really different directions. The two of us this really kindred language. And when you talk about champ that we need a champion each other. And Lennon usually which is sister in each other. Yeah. Well sister, he's just the best word ever. Okay. So love this. Okay. There's these. Carpentry, just sports and nails carpentry. Right. Jesus is one. Okay. So so there's this thing happens in carpentry, okay? Where the the main the mainstay of building is a joist. And so every once in a while did Joyce starts to weaken because there's a load on top. That's too heavy. Okay. So when that happens, they say, okay brings some extra boards, and they put an extra board to the right of the weakening joist. And if that doesn't make a strong enough that they bring another board, and they put it to the left of the week noise. And with an extra board to the right? An extra board to the left. The joists becomes strong enough to with withhold any load. And you know, what that carpentry system is called sister ring. I mean, it's like the guy carpenters were like, oh, we can't name this, brother. And that's like too much intimacy. That looks more like what the ladies would do. But it's just the most beautiful to me example of how women support each other right and for life because sometimes the load on our on us just gets too heavy to carry by ourselves. And the mistake we make when that happens is we think we've done something wrong. But we think we've made a mistake we've gone wrong somewhere because it can't be this heavy, but if we'd never had to ask for help because we couldn't carry the load anymore than we would miss out on the best part of life, which is just sister and be existed, right or champion each other. Go. Get the ball score the goal. Yes. And I'm using the language of we need to accompany each other, which is just another, you know, in this universe of words that also realizing that is that's also tricky when we get for like saying, forget me and is very complex. And you also have a story about coaching your ten year old daughter soccer team and somebody asking you. So you retired. What did you retire from? This season. So is halfway through the season. And we were warming up for a game. And I was laying off some some of the soccer balls. So they could shoot. And I had just mentioned like, oh when I retired and one of the girls said, oh, what did you retire from? And I said soccer. She said, oh who did you play for? And I said I played for the United States of America. And.

"There's a clear cut winner in group d with the us they've Sweden which is another top team in the world. They also have a stray area Nigeria. And there's a chance that the US may not win that group and that could have serious repercussions for them. And how they do. And there are a lot of other really great teams that are in the tournament this year. So I think there's going to be the expanded field. There could be some surprises. And I think World Cups are made for surprises and. Dramatic storyline. So. I think this will this will deliver obviously Canada's got a big storyline going for them their host in this thing. They wanna be the team that brings it back for their fans. What kind of chances do they have China's not an easy game to start off. With by any means. Well, actually, I think that. In that group. I have China exiting. I that program has really had some troubles since we remember them in nine hundred ninety nine I think that Canada is the host so in that sense their favorite, but I do think they're a bit of a dark horse. They have Christine Sinclair who is a legend. They have another player. Sophie Schmidt, who I think will really step up this year and be an important player for them and they have home field advantage. And I think that home field advantage is something that people kind of overvalue sometimes, but this is the first sporting event that's going to span five times owns it's a huge event and Canada they can manage that travel better than some of the other teams. I think that actually could really help them in terms of across the board the favorites coming into this tournament. Who are the teams highlighting at you? Only a handful of teams that I've ever won this thing. Do you think there's a possibility of maybe a new team lifting the trophy at the end? Well, I think that you still of have those five teams that everyone is looking for. That's the US. That's Germany, France, Sweden and Japan who won last time around. So I think everyone's going to be again looking to those teams. I don't think we're going to see a team outside of those winning. But you know, there are the dark horses. There's canada. I think Netherlands are dark three young team coming in. This is the first World Cup. And they're going to be a lot of teams that are going to be in their first World Cup. But I think, you know, France of Burmese, France and Germany are two teams really wanna watch especially because if they win their group, which they definitely should they'll probably end up facing each other in the quarterfinal, and that's a huge matchup because these are two teams based on how well they're playing you expect to see in the final. So it's gonna be really interesting to see which one makes it out of that limb back to the US. I get the feeling that folks are not that high on this team. They're still one of the favorites. And I wonder if that's just by again, reputation reputation, or I mean, are you would you be concerned going in if you were a fan? Well, I think player for player, talent wise. Yes, the US is definitely a top team. And I think people expect them to go far with good reason that being said, I think that some of the recent results and performances, you know, you look at them. And you say if the US can't score a goal against South Korea. How are they going to score a goal against Sweden in their last three tuneup matches?.
