Who are you?

Hi! I’m Jake Landau. I am a passionate fan of US Soccer who has covered the game semi-professionally for over five years. Initially I wrote for local outlets dedicated to the New York Red Bulls and Philadelphia Union, but now I talk about the beautiful game on YouTube, on the It’s Called Soccer podcast, and here on Substack.
