Episode 15 of "There's Still Time", the AFTN podcast, and it's another one of our post game pods but with a little bit more this time around.

Vancouver Whitecaps remained unbeaten at home with a 3-1 win over Chicago Fire. We chat about the game and the impact of Kekuta Manneh, along with audio from the Gambian and Martin Rennie.

We also chat about Camilo and discuss those murmurs about him playing for the Canadian national team.

And talking of the national team, we have look back at the Gold Cup. Was it worth bringing such a young squad and what did they learn? We also hear from interim head coach Colin Miller, who spoke to us after the Mexico defeat about the leap from the levels these guys have been playing to the international stage and what he thinks of some of the Canadian media criticism.

One young guy who hopes to feature in the Canadian set up down the line is Whitecaps' Residency prospect Sam Adekugbe. Sam has been turning a lot of heads this past year and the general feeling is that he will be on the Caps' MLS squad sooner rather than later. We caught up with Sam before he headed down to Houston for the U18s Finals week and spoke with him about his development, his hopes for the future, the USSDA Finals and his Canadian passport situation.

All this and there's still time to also chat with Vancouver Whitecaps Residency head coach Gordon Forrest about the tough test that the U18s will face this week at the Academy Finals.

This episode was recorded at BC Place right after the Chicago game, so enjoy all the background noise from the air conditioning and slamming doors!
