USMNT & USWNT Olympic rosters announced, Copa & Euro roundup, San Diego Wave controversy

Rosters have officially dropped for the United States men’s and women’s soccer team and The Cooligans (minus Alexis) are here to discuss how each squad shapes up, including a notable omission and a controversial inclusion.

Christian Polanco is joined by guest host Christine Cupo of CBS Sports to talk about the disappointment from Diego Luna in getting left off the men’s squad and why his desire not to be an alternate has hindered the team’s bench options. They also get into the addition of Korbin Albert to the women’s side following her controversial actions on social media.

Also on this episode, Christian and Christine give a recap of all the latest action in the Copa América, including Canada making the United States look bad by advancing to the semi-finals after penalty kicks and Uruguay’s manager Marcelo Bielsa’s viral post-match comments.

They then get into the pressure that the England team faced in their matchup with Switzerland when the match had to be decided by penalty kicks. They close the show talking about the controversy surrounding the San Diego Wave FC and President Jill Ellis following allegations of harassment and abuse inside the NWSL club.
