Episode 982: Messi Goes To Russia, Juicing Baseballs, US Humiliation, Commentaries Of The World
James McClean may have been compared to Gareth Bale at times over the last 48 hours… but there remains only one Lionel Messi. He scored a hat-trick for Argentina in their must-win final World Cup qualifier against Ecuador to ensure they will be going to Russia, and we speak to Tim Vickery of the BBC about what might have been his greatest ever display for his country.

There’s also the USA’s humiliating defeat away to Trinidad and Tobago which means Donald Trump won’t be going to Russia next summer, Falcao’s CONCACAF diplomacy, commentating styles of the world, the Panamanian ballboy, and Ken’s amazing Bruce Arena impersonations.
