Planet Fútbol Podcast: Big-picture implications of Montreal's CCL run

Thursday April 30th, 2015

The Montreal Impact came awfully close to making history Wednesday night but ultimately fell short of winning the CONCACAF Champions League title, falling at a sold-out Stade Olympique to Club America.

What are the bigger-picture implications of another MLS failure on CONCACAF' biggest stage? How important, really, is the CCL and the FIFA Club World Cup to MLS and U.S. Soccer? What do MLS and its teams need to do in order to compete consistently for the region's top club prize? SI's Grant Wahl, Brian Straus and Avi Creditor delve into the details and take a broader look after a thrilling run from Montreal in the latest Planet Fútbol Podcast.
