    Day 13 of the FIFA World Cup saw one of the tournament's most powerful moments as South Korea players were moved to tears after progressing to the knockout stage in a dramatic win over Portugal. Victories of the more pyrrhic sort befell Uruguay and Cameroon, while the grudge match between Serbia and Switzerland delivered on goals and handbags—and eventually jubilation for the Swiss. Josh and Brandon then look ahead to Saturday's kickoff of the Round of Sixteen and matchups between the U.S. and the Netherlands, as well as Argentina and Australia. Hail Cheaters!

Japan and Spain ultimately move on, while Group F saw the tournament's second African nation qualify for the knockout stage. Croatia is also through after a shocking performance by Belgium, who will know their team xG does not tell the full story. After recapping Thursday, Josh and Brandon look ahead to tomorrow's final day of group play as Brazil and Portugal set out to clinch their pole position and Serbia and Switzerland have a score to settle.

Josh and Brandon then preview Thursday’s round of fixtures with Germany and Belgium fighting for their lives and Morocco looking to be the Cinderella. Hail Cheaters!

Josh and Brandon also recap the action elsewhere as England sailed past Wales and Senegal battled to beat Ecuador and clinch second place in Group A. Then it’s on to Wednesday and an almighty showdown in Group C between Poland, Argentina, Saudi Arabia, and Mexico, while in Group D Australia will look to upset expectations. Hail Cheaters!

Please no politics

Love the podcast & listen every week. However I wish they would just stick to soccer talk & not get political. Assuming all their listeners have the same political views as they do is not correct. I get they both live in the far left leaning bubble of NYC but their listeners are from all over the US & world. I don’t see how pushing BLM & rainbow causes or bashing Tucker Carlson & Trump are helping them gain fans.

Worth the listen
