We weren’t SUPPOSED to have an episode today, but things escalated for Spain very much over the last 24 hours. They are now trying to avoid an incredible humiliation in the 2018 World Cup as Fernando Hierro takes over for Lopetegui 2 days before a huge game against Portugal.
We also discuss the exciting news of the United 2026 Bid winning the hosting rights for the 2026 FIFA World Cup. The Final is going to be played right in our backyard and we could not be more excited for this tournament.
