Grant has a revealing interview with Santiago Solari (at 35:14), the manager of Mexico's Club América and formerly of Real Madrid. Solari discusses why his hometown of Rosario, Argentina, has produced so many great soccer minds and players; why he attended college at Stockton University in New Jersey; playing all 90 minutes for Real Madrid in its 2002 Champions League final victory; why he moved into coaching; his time managing Real Madrid in 2018-19 and why he decided to take the América job.

Before that, Grant and Chris Wittyngham break down the U.S. men's third straight failure to qualify for the Olympics after Sunday's 2-1 loss to Honduras. There's plenty to talk about!
