Alexi Lalas is an analyst on FS1, which will be broadcasting the MLS All Stars vs. Real Madrid on Wednesday. Coverage begins at 8:30 pm ET. We discussed:
- Given what happened in 2014 versus Bayern Munich, how hard is too hard to try in the game?
- Would promotion/relegation be good for the MLS?
- Would Lalas be in favor of keeping it versus an international power club, going back to East vs. West, or something else?
- How does he feel about CONCACAF potentially limiting friendlies?
- Who had a better USMNT career, Landon Donovan or Clint Dempsey? Who would he take for the next five years, Ronaldo or Messi?
- What would be a success and what would be a failure for USMNT in the 2018 World Cup in Russia? What is Christian Pulisic’s ceiling?
Hope you enjoy the conversation!
