Concacaf World Cup qualifying thus far has been as predictable as you could have imagined. Dan Lauletta, John Halloran and Rachael Kriger analyze the United States‘ games thus far and whether there’s any shot at all that a team other than Canada and the U.S. will qualify for the Olympics out of this region.
In segment two, they discuss Christine Sinclair finally setting the all-time international scoring record with her 185th goal, breaking Abby Wambach’s old mark. Dan makes his case that Sinclair might be the best all-around player in the sport’s history, while John points out that it depends when you’ve seen her over the past two decades. Rachael opines on whether Sinclair’s record will ever be broken, and why Sinclair remains so underappreciated.
