The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out for another packed show of Vancouver Whitecaps, MLS, and Canadian football chat.

Decision Day beckons and the Whitecaps are heading into it in the playoff places and with their postseason fate very firmly in their own hands. A draw at LAFC on Tuesday night has left them with both hands on the wheel and looking in a fairly good position with one game of the MLS regular season. Can they steer the clear path ahead?

We look back at the highs, lows, and main talking points from the game in LA, talk about the defensive shift put in by the entire team as they were put under siege, and look ahead to Sunday, the clash with Seattle, and the playoff scenarios that could play out. Plus we hear from Vanni Sartini, Maxime Crepeau and Florian Jungwirth.

There's been a lot of developments in the Whitecaps abuse scandal this past week and we bring you up to speed. And there's still time to chat about some of the other big talking points around Canadian soccer this week as the Canadian Premier League playoff race heats up, Pacific FC just fall short in their bid to reach the Canadian Championship final, and Forge FC make history by becoming the first CPL side to reach the CONCACAF Champions League. Plus we chat with Valour's Phillip Dos Santos, Cavalry's Tommy Wheeldon Jr, and Forge's Bobby Smyrniotis.

The music in this week's show comes from our new Artists of the Month, New Jersey band Crazy and the Brains, Scottish rapper Mog, and My Brother Woody return in this episode's Wavelength.
