The U.S. women's national team is currently taking on CONCACAF foes on the field, but its players are squaring off against the U.S. federation off the field in a labor dispute, so we welcome SI legal analyst Michael McCann to the new Planet FÃºtbol Podcast to break down the case and explain how it's likely to be resolved.
We're also joined by New York City FC midfielder Frank Lampard, who spoke with SI's Grant Wahl ahead of his first full season in MLS about what it was like playing against current manager Patrick Vieira as opposed to now playing for him, and the rise of Ghanaian teammate Kwadwo Poku.
We close by responding to your listener/reader questions, which you submitted on Twitter and Facebook, ranging from MLS to Barcelona's dominance to Christian Pulisic and beyond.
