One more sleep Atlanta United fans!

The MLS Cup is only one day away now as our Atlanta United take on Portland Trailblazers at Mercedes-Benz Stadium tomorrow night. United VP and Technical Director Carlos Bocanegra joined The Morning Show with John and Hugh on Friday and talked about the buzz going around the city this week.

"It's been a lot of fun having the fan-fare around soccer. Obviously, it's a big game it's a big game for us, a big game for the city so it's been fun. There's been a buzz around the training ground with the players, the staff and even around the city--people talking about it at the gas station in line--it's been really fun."

And in addition to the excitement of the Championship game, Atlanta striker Josef Martinez was name the league's best on Wednesday: MLS MVP.

"He's been fantastic all year for us," Bocanegra said talking about Martinez. "I think it's a testament to him and his teammates; they've done very well."
