Sounding off on Soccer: Big wins for Hounds, Pitt plus talkin’ USMNT and City United FC

We rounded up a full Pittsburgh Soccer Now crew as Mark Goodman, Matt Popchock and Jordan Smith joined John Krysinsky for another edition of Sounding Off on Soccer on Pittsburgh Sports Live.

In this episode, among the topics discussed included:

  • Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC earned its fourth consecutive playoff berth with an impressive performance against front-running Tampa Bay; how will they fare in rematch at Miami?
  • The Pitt Panthers have serious talent now, but which of the top players from Pitt’s nationally ranked team can make the jump to the next level?
  • Discussing the United States Men’s National Team’s prospects after a stumble vs Panama in CONCACAF qualifying rounds
  • More soccer is good, right? Everyone shares their thoughts on the emergence of Pittsburgh’s newest soccer club, Pittsburgh City United FC
