This week we speak to the preeminent soccer journalist in the United States, Grant Wahl, about the role of soccer amid the coronavirus pandemic. We talk about coronavirus, an update on USA women’s soccer lawsuit for equal pay, and more.

We also have some Choice Words about the bribery scandal that should be rocking the IOC. In addition, we have Just Stand Up and Just Sit Down awards to members of FC Barcelona team for taking pay cuts to help club employees, and people making racist attacks on sports journalist Jemele Hill. All that and more on this week’s Edge of Sports!
