The latest episode of the Urban Pitch Podcast covers everything surrounding the Gregg Berhalter-Reyna family saga, in addition to taking a look at the USWNT’s chances at the 2023 World Cup.
With over a month since its last game and a few weeks before its next, you’d think that we’d cool it on the United States men’s national team talk for the time being. But that would assume soccer in this country is functional.
The latest drama between Gregg Berhalter and Claudio and Danielle Reyna dominated headlines last week, as you’d expect from an alleged blackmail plot between two lifelong friends so high up the U.S. Soccer hierarchy would.
So when it came to our first podcast of 2023, it was almost a given that we’d be discussing the newfound drama and subsequent fallout of it. However, that’s not all that’s going on in American soccer. The United States women’s national team is gearing up to win its third straight World Cup title, a feat that has never been accomplished in the history of the game.
To balance out all the tabloid talk, the Urban Pitch Podcast crew also takes a look at the current USWNT roster and what its chances are at defending its title for the second time in a row.
