On this Soccer 2 the MAX episode, Sean Garmer, Erik Watkins and Rachael McKriger discuss the 26 player squad named for the U.S. Men's National Team's final two games in 2018 World Cup qualifying. How big of a deal is it that some players were left off like Fabian Johnson? What about some players named like Benny Feilhaber and Michael Orozco? What do we expect from this team? We discuss those topics and more.

After that, we turn our attention towards the incoming NWSL Playoffs starting on October 7 & 8. We give our predictions for who could win the NWSL Championship and give our thoughts on the league as a whole this year.

Rachael bids us adieu and the focus changes to the playoff race in Major League Soccer. Who's made it so far? Who still has a ways to go? And how wild is it going to get?

Finally, the show ends with a great discussion on the NASL Anti-trust lawsuit, the latest on what's going on and what it could it mean for Soccer in America depending on what happens.
