Grant Wahl joins SI Now to discuss the major off-field stories surrounding the U.S. women's national team and Leicester City's big match at Arsenal on Sunday.

The U.S. women's national team made headlines on the field again Wednesday, beating Costa Rica 5-0 to open Olympic qualifying, but there are still a pair of off-field storylines dominating the discussion surrounding the team. 

The Zika virus threat in Brazil has caused Hope Solo to consider not going to the Olympics–should the U.S. qualify–and the ongoing lawsuit over the U.S. Soccer-U.S. women's players union labor dispute are both hot-button issues, and SI's Grant Wahl discusses them in his latest appearance on SI Now. 

Wahl also turns attention across the Atlantic Ocean, where Liverpool fans won a battle against management over rising ticket prices and Leicester City takes on Arsenal in the midst of its storybook run at the Premier League title.
