Robb Tribble and Randy McMichael were down at The Gulch today to broadcast live ahead of today's Atlanta United match vs Seattle Sounders.  Jason Longshore, United Color Analyst - 92.9 The Game, joined the guys to talk about whether or not Croatia has the legs to win the World Cup today vs France, what United needs in order to give the team that "threat in the air", why teams can't successfully play United man-to-man for a full 90 minutes, the expectation that if United gets the early goal they'll run away with the match, and what winning the Supporter's Shield really means.  Longshore also talked about the fact that soccer is growing in the U.S. and is being paid attention to.  And, Longshore said that it’s easier to get good coaching early on in other sports because those sports have been established, but that the federation is starting to invest more in coach and player education.
