Jason La Canfora is a NFL Insider for CBS, but he also covers soccer for CBS and is an American Outlaw.
Jason joined Ed and Ken to talk about what he expects in today’s knockout game for USA against Belgium.
“I’m giddy I literally have goosebumps and trouble sleeping the night before” is how Jason described his mindset about today’s game. Jason also described Belgium as “a fairly loaded team” and mentioned some players who have played all around the world and dominated. When asked to describe Jozy Altidore and what the means to the team Jason said “imagine the Ravens without Ed Reed in his prime” and went in to the intricacies of how Jozy can change a game-plan for the USA. When asked how much Jozy will play Jason said “my gut is we don’t see Jozy unless it’s desperation time.”
