About this Episode

First up, Matt and I discuss who the surprise packages at the World Cup, both teams and players. Could Croatia and Senegal cause upsets? Who's going to be the 'James Rodriguez' of this tournament? On the other hand- who's going to fail to deliver? Will France and Belgium crumble under the pressure?

Next up, will Belgium be the next Spain, or the next England? With so many individual talents, the pressure on Belgium is high- but can they find the cohesion and chemistry to take them far into the tournament? Matt and I have our say!

Neymar is most certainly going to be talk of the tournament, but will this be his World Cup? Will he lead Brazil to glory and finally stamp his name in history? Or will Brazil flatter to decieve. Their squad is most certainly stronger this time around, but will we see them finally replicate the winning mentality their 2002 squad have?

It would be a shame if Matt came on the pod and didn't discuss Serie A players, so I asked him what Serie A players will be stars at the World Cup. We discuss Luca Torreira, Arkadiusz Milik and various other italian based players who could have a great impact on the tournament.

Next, we talk about Leroy Sane and how he was left out of the World Cup final 23! The PFA young player of the year was dropped from the Germany squad, and we discuss why this may have happened- and whether or not Germany could regret it.

Finally, we had to talk about Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Who will have the better tournament? Who will lead their team to glory? Find out what Matt had to say about the two best players on the earth at the moment.
