(August 12, 2016) – On this episode of Last Word SC Matt and Joe break down the shock that was the USWNT losing in the opening knock out round of the Olympics. We lament the loss, but try to make sense of why expectations were a wee bit overblown for our American Ladies.

Then the boys talk about the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup drama and Matt admits that the refs were totally messed up in last weekend’s game between the LA Galaxy and New York Red Bulls.
Joe gives us an update on the CONCACAF Champions League group stage and how the Portland Timbers are going to navigate their schedule. The boys also break down Group C (the one with Sporting KC AND Vancouver Whitecaps).
Lastly, Matt and Joe come up with some creative ideas to improve officiating in American Soccer and do predictions for the weekend matches.
