Episode 11 of the Yanks Abroad Podcast is now online, and can be found here.
In this episode, the usual round up of recaps and results from around the world is followed by discussion of Alejandro Bedoya's first goal with Rangers, Josh Gatt's imminent return from injury, and Sacha Kljestan winning Belgium's Jupiler League with Anderlecht.
The group welcomes in guest Franco Panizo, the New York Red Bulls beat reporter for MLS Soccer and U.S. National Team correspondent for Soccer By Ives. Over the remainder of the show, there is discussion, predictions, and good-natured debating about Jurgen Klinsmann's upcoming roster selections.
One of the main topics during this segment is the issue of young players and whether or not they will be able to get minutes under Klinsmann after his declaration that he will be calling upon veterans to achieve results this summer. Afterwards, talk turns to New York Red Bulls topics, including Juan Agudelo, Kenny Cooper, and who the biggest distraction is for the team. Difficulty: Not Rafa Marquez.
