Will Bruin and Alexi Lalas join the latest episode of Winging it with Zak and Brad

The latest episode of Winging it with Zak and Brad is here!

In this week’s installment, hosts Steve Zakuani and Brad Evans are joined on the pod by Sounders FC forward Will Bruin and FOX Sports analyst Alexi Lalas.

Prior to Major League Soccer suspending play during the COVID-19 crisis, Bruin was well ahead of schedule to come back from an ACL injury he suffered last season. While he’s been able to continue his recovery at home, his triumphant return to the pitch has been pushed back until the league resumes play.

“It’s definitely tougher because I was on pace to return for the FC Dallas game [on March 21],” said Bruin. “It’s frustrating, but at the same time this is more time for me to get healthy. Each week that this goes on is another week that ensures the risk of re-injury goes down.”

Later on in the pod, Zak and Brad are joined by former USMNT center back Alexi Lalas. In addition to discussing his career both as a player and broadcaster, the former LA Galaxy defender shares his opinions on how leagues and teams around the world should adjust their strategies.
