Midge Purce and Katie Nolan are back as they get together to discuss the end of the World Cup group stage, with Portugal in the rear view. First, they react to the USWNT’s 0-0 draw, finally seeing Lynn Williams, and a very soft yellow that could mean everything next round. Then, they look into recent comments about the team and the negative attitude of both fans and the media, explaining why the USWNT is still positioned to win. Later, they’re joined by USWNT goalkeeper A.D. Franch, who gives her view on the US in the knockouts and what it might take to beat Sweden. Finally, Katie and Midge look at some of the other knockout matches and speculate on World Cup contenders.
