International action - Joachim Löw refines his Germany squad (and we do too), USMNT's Alfredo Morales speaks on FCI promotion push

The World Cup field is set - and Germany's squad is taking shape as well. Matt and Nik convene to hash out who's 'in', who's a 'maybe', and who's a 'maybe not' in the Russia 2018 reckoning for the Nationalmannschaft, as well as several other storylines that emerged from the break. US international Alfredo Morales, defensive midfielder for FC Ingolstadt, drops by to tell us about his team's battle to get back into the 1. Bundesliga, about feeling left out of the USMNT under Bruce Arena, and about his best bud Mathew Leckie's move to his hometown club Hertha BSC.
