Episode 31 is ready to get your weekend started! The United States Men’s National Team destroy El Salvador, so we begin with a recap of the match and the noteworthy performances. We talk about the young guys who made their debut, like Chris Mueller, Mark McKenzie, and Brenden Aaronson, and the return of Paul Arriola.

World Cup qualifying has a new schedule for the USMNT, so we break down the windows and who the team could face when everything begins (as of now) next September. When are the matches at home against Mexico and on the road at Azteca? What’s the hardest window? We break it all down, including who from the early rounds of qualifying are prime candidates to join the USMNT, Mexico, Costa Rica, Jamaica, and Honduras in the Octagon.

After the break, we conclude with the USWNT and how the new Concacaf women’s calendar will affect them. Bottom line: the WNT will be a part of a new Nations League tournament! We explain how that will work and how World Cup qualifying will be basically the same for the queens of the soccer world.
