So, it’s all Lionel Messi’s fault, right? Hmm. Willy Caballero’s howler didn’t exactly help matters, as the podders discuss after another hectic day of action. Max Rushden is joined by Paul Doyle and Marcela Mora y Araujo in the studio, while Kieran Pender phones in to discuss Australia’s pluck and Dom Fifield talks all things England.
Day nine and we have our first crisis of this World Cup! An official crisis! And it belongs to Argentina! Croatia’s stunning 3-0 win has put them on the brink of a humiliating exit – and plunged a proud footballing nation into a state of emergency.
Plenty more to come on that over the coming hours, including reports the players want manager Jorge Sampaoli out of the door before the final group game against Nigeria. You wouldn’t bet against it.
