    One World Cup Cinderella story ends in heartbreak, another continues — off one of the gutsiest plays ever

    Brendan and Rebecca go around the grounds on the latest Round of 16 results: Why are World Cup Cinderellas so rare? Are Brazil’s goal celebrations just too much? And is there anything more badass than a Panenka to win a penalty shootout? Then, they preview all four quarterfinal matches, and Rebecca has an unexpected change of heart about her beloved England side.

    ‘Ted Lasso’ star Brett Goldstein on England’s delightfully angry goalkeeper and how lasagna can ensure victory over France

    A 3-0 victory over Senegal wasn’t enough for Rebecca, who has some quibbles for England’s manager, Gareth Southgate. Plus, Brendan and Rebecca recap all of the day’s action, delighting in Harry Kane finally scoring a goal and marveling at the magic of France’s Kylian Mbappé. And Brett Goldstein, who plays Roy Kent on ‘Ted Lasso,’ joins the pod to share his favorite thing about watching England (Jordan Pickford’s attitude) and to propose a creative way for England to handle Mbappé in the squad’s quarterfinal matchup (lasagna, anyone?).

    What went wrong for The Guys in USA’s crushing World Cup exit

    What went wrong for The Guys in USA’s crushing World Cup exit

    Minutes after the U.S.’s heartbreaking loss to the Netherlands, Brendan and Rebecca talk through where The Guys went wrong: an uncharacteristic flub from Tyler Adams, questionable lineup decisions from Gregg Berhalter, and above all else … youth. And after this “naive but brave” performance, Brendan and Rebecca can’t help but be hopeful for 2024 and 2026. Then they briefly look ahead to England–Senegal and take a detour into the startling way that most Brits butter their toast.

    The end of a totally unpredictable group stage, plus knockout-round predictions with Steve Nash

    Brendan and Rebecca put a bow on the group stage of this entertaining, bizarre, and totally unpredictable World Cup. Then basketball legend (and footy superfan) Steve Nash joins them to discuss his global World Cup allegiances (Canada, England, Wales, AND the U.S.), his thoughts on why Gio Reyna is on the bench, and to make some knockout-round predictions. Steve shares Rebecca’s affliction with the “Southgate flu” and comes together with Brendan despite their Spurs–Arsenal rivalry. Finally, Brendan and Rebecca talk out X-factors and nerves for Saturday’s pivotal USA–Netherlands showdown.

    Making sense of an utterly chaotic World Cup day. Plus, special guest Steve Kerr.

    Making sense of an utterly chaotic World Cup day. Plus, special guest Steve Kerr.

    Brendan and Rebecca break down some stunning results no one could have predicted, as Morocco and Japan win their respective groups and Germany and Belgium are both eliminated. Then, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr joins to share how he became a soccer superfan later in life (thanks, Mo Salah), explain why he shows soccer videos to his NBA team, and go on the record about an iconic moment with Michael Jordan at the 1998 NBA Finals. Brendan and Rebecca wrap up with some bits and bobs on the Ghana-Uruguay beef and Christian Pulisic’s injury, then tip their caps to Stéphanie Frappart, who made history today as the first woman to referee a men’s World Cup match.

    Reliving USA’s nail-biting victory — and wondering whether England is actually any good

    Reliving USA’s nail-biting victory — and wondering whether England is actually any good

    A joyous Brendan and Rebecca breathe sighs of relief as the U.S. and England both advance to the knockout rounds. Brendan complains about not sitting down for an hour and a half, while Rebecca complains about which players rested the final 30 minutes in a 3-0 win. They cover Christian Pulisic’s thrilling goal (and painful injury) and the harrowing final minutes of the U.S.–Iran match, and attempt to answer an important question: Is England actually any good? Then, “Dutch in 60” takes on a whole new meaning as the pair preview this weekend’s U.S.–Netherlands and England–Senegal games.

Qatar

It’s entirely unconscionable to create entertainment around an exploitative event like this. FIFA is a thoroughly criminal enterprise at this point. I expected better from Apple. But I guess you too go where the money is.

It’s too bad because the format does sound appealing. At another World Cup, maybe. At Qatar, hard pass. This actually taints Ted Lasso for me. Until I found this podcast, I considered it the best show in years. Now, I can’t unsee the actors promoting Qatar.

Actions matter. Sometimes the best thing you can do is nothing at all.

Boycott Qatar

One should not support this FIFA World Cup. It’s such a shame that soccer is sold by FIFA. A company like Apple that argues to have high moral standards should not create hype around this awful event. I do hope they speak about what happens in Qatar! Workers are dying. Women have no rights. LGBTQI+ is forbidden… This should be pointed out and not the fun of soccer. This is not worth the game. The teaser of the show sounds quite entertaining and I would listen to it on other World Cups. But they have not mention the circumstances in Qatar at all… I have listend to it, to at least say something about the content of the podcast.
One cannot support this World Cup. Sorry Apple - this is no good.
