Episode 4 of the Stars and Stripes FC Podcast is here! On this episode, Parker Cleveland joins us as we begin our discussion with the USWNT’s preparations for Tournament of Nations. We get to the obvious elephant in the room, Jaelene Hinkle’s removal from the United States roster, and what it means for that controversy.

Next, we highlight Megan Rapinoe’s nomination for FIFA Best 2018 and whether she has a chance with a loaded field. Finally, we get into the discussion of whether the USMNT could find any success with using the same model France had to win the 2018 World Cup, or whether any model (Spain’s tiki taka style, Germany’s possession style) is the way to go.
