PawedCast Episode 53: Copa America, Servando Carrasco Interview, San Jose Earthquakes Preview and More

Another supersized show! Copa America, U.S. Open Cup, Euro 2016, Orlando City B, Orlando Pride and a look ahead at Orlando City vs. San Jose Earthquakes. Oh, and an exclusive interview with Servando Carrasco!

Well, we took a week off during Copa America but the Mane Land PawedCast is back with a vengeance. We've got a show clocking in at a smidge over an hour long where we talked about Copa, Euro 2016, the resurgence of Orlando City B, the road woes of the Orlando Pride and a whole lot more.

We were also fortunate enough to talk to Orlando City midfielder Servando Carrasco. Servando tells us why he loves playing defensive midfield, even if it isn't the most glamorous position on the soccer field, as well as who some of his heroes were that influenced his fondness for the position. He also weighs in on the Copa break, this week's win over Jacksonville Armada FC in the U.S. Open Cup, and Saturday's opponents, the San Jose Earthquakes.

And no PawedCast would be complete without our key match-ups and laughably wrong predictions for the game. All of this entertainment and information comes your way for the low, low cost of absolutely nothing. Enjoy!

Here's how the sausage was made:

0:13- Michael and Andrew talk about international soccer, why the U.S. Open Cup isn't more popular, the job Anthony Pulis is doing with OCB and the Pride struggling to score on the road.

53:08- Servando Carrasco jumps on and he's well worth the wait. The Orlando City midfielder talks about doing trick shots with Brek Shea and Joe Bendik, how much nicer it is to live in the same city as your wife, what's great about defensive midfield and a lot more.

1:08:28- Breaking down the Earthquakes and prediction time!

That's all for this week. We'll be back to wrap up San Jose and look ahead to Toronto FC.
