RNO: Canada has struggled for success in Latin America (South America, Central America, Mexico) over the last decade. How do you see the entry of yourself, Zambrano and other players based on Latin American teams (including your U23 teammate Keven Aleman) impacting that?

Juan Cordova: Latin America is a challenging place to play especially if you are not comfortable or have limited experience in the conditions. Clubs take every advantage to win. I am fortunate to have gained the comfortable level in such environments throughout my upbringing.

Kevin and I connect well. Play in Chile has similarity to Central America. It will be important for players with similar experience to contribute at the national team level. Canada needs to get results in these parts of the world        

 

WELL SAID!!! THAT TYPE OF MINDSET for Canada at his age is awesome.  Considering how thin we are at the back I will really be following and supporting this young lad.  All the best Mr. Cordova!

Juan Cordova: Octavio is passionate and demanding. He stresses possession and the incursions with wall.

great interview by the boys at RNO, thank you!

Initial views of Cordova are all positive. He's doing and saying all the right things...notabily for a 21 yr old

Interesting to hear Cordova talk about moving to a top league in North America. I wonder if a move to MLS is in the cards at some point?

No mention on how he is eligible in the interview. I know a few posters were wondering how he was eligible.

There's apparently a few MLS and NASL teams in talks about bringing him in on trial or loan.

I think "incursions with wall" means breaking down defenses with triangular passing and give and goes, a give and go is a "pared" in Spanish.

If OZ finds a way to work him and Aleman into the senior team and brings Cavallini back Canada could be solid in Latin American. It would be a real plus if Floro actually brings some of his favourite Canadians (like Piette and Straith) into Alajuelense (should he last there).

Anthony Totera has mentioned in his show that a few individuals (well known) are destined to destroy the CPL. Who are these individuals? What is he talking about? I'm really confused? These same individuals hate the name CANADIAN PREMIER LEAGUE, and they want to change it because they are jealous that they have not been invited to join the CPL. Who are these people?

I still don't understand what nextsportstar exactly is. Is it just a bunch of Italian Canadians ranting? Is it a legit sports site? Why is it called "nextsportstar" if they also talk entertainment and politics a lot? How is Phil Esposito an expert on American politics? Is the site pro or anti-Trump? Who What Where When Why?

I can't figure out what part of matty's questions are just rhetorical :unsure:

The interest from Primera teams is interesting. My friend's family is obsessed with the Santiago Wanderers. I would love for them to be one of the team looking at him.

It's as legit as Cheetah energy drink and Steelback beer.

No link. When I was talking with his agent he noted a few MLS and NASL clubs were looking at him in addition to the Primera Division. Union San Felipe are hoping for a loan.

    • The question remains: Why on Earth do we deserve to play perennial European World Cup teams when we haven't even been to the Hex in 20 years? If the Nations League groups are 6 per level and parsed by FIFA rankings, that puts us in a group with Honduras, Jamaica, T&T, Guatemala and El Salvador. That's really good competition for us, gives us the experience we need in Central America, and puts us in a position to get promoted into a group where the majority of games are against Mexico, the US or Costa Rica.  I'm not sure there is a country that benefits more from the Nations League than Canada.
    • I think you summarized it well.  We saw him play a phenomenal game earlier in the season against Seattle.  But then you have some games where he was not nearly as involved as he could or should be.  I think he played the first leg of that game versus Ottawa and that would have been a chance for cnd players like Chapman to shine but that didnt happen.   Last night, big props for the goal, but there was a play later in the second half where he seems to get intimidated by Giovinco screaming for the ball when he (Chapman) was in a good position to create something useful.  Hence he forced an unnecessary pass to Giovinco who was in no position to make anything usefull of the play.  Maybe we can blame Giovinco for that. Or we can blame the usual "locker room pecking order or culture" that exists Soccer. By that, i mean that Giovinco makes 7 Mill, starts every game, is a league MVP, has several international caps for Italy, played for Juventus etc .  Whereas chapman is young player looking to build a reputation.   So what would we do if we were In Chapman's shoes on that play?    If we had guts, we ignore The 7mill dollar man and do whats right on that play and hold on to the ball a little longer.   But If want to keep our spots on the team, we listen to what giovinco wants and says if he is screaming at you. 
    • I'm just repeating what I've heard. SKC likes to play with a high-line which is suited for CBs with recovery speed. Besler, Opara and Palmer-Brown are all rapid for CBs. Didic is going to have a hard time breaking into their system. He's going to spend the rest of the year at SPR unless Palmer-Brown is sold in this window and there is no end in sight for Besler and Opara.
    • Tomer Chencinski started and kept a clean sheet for Shamrock Rovers in an impressive 1-0 away win over defending champions Dundalk.
    • Are better then almost every team in concacaf.
