The latest episode of the World Soccer Talk Podcast is presented by Sling. Hosted by Christopher Harris and Kartik Krishnaiyer, this episode discusses how Wrexham is increasing the interest in lower-league soccer in the United States. The success of the fifth division team was the biggest soccer story from this past weekend, arguably bigger than many of the Premier League stories.

We discuss how the interest in the team continues to grow at the same time that CBS Sports Golazo Network has agreed to show games from US Open Cup. Could one of the reasons why The Golazo Network picked up the permission to show US Open Cup games be due to the interest level of a fellow lower-league team, Wrexham AFC?

Other topics discussed on the show include whether Jesse Marsch could have done a better job at Leeds United than Javi Gracia, as well as reading your feedback about CBS Sports’ coverage of the UEFA Champions League, and discussing the new appointment of a sporting director by US Soccer.
