Episode 2062: Euro 2020 Is (Almost) HERE
We’ve got a bumper Euro 2020 preview on today’s show. Can a team win this competition playing exciting football? Why can’t star studded France play with more elan? And what does “pragmatic” football mean in reality?
International football isn't just behind clubs – it might now be branching off down a completely line, where it is much slower and defensive.
It might be why Southgate and Deschamps are right to be pragmatic at #EURO2020

We talk to English media wolf pack members Miguel Delaney and Jonathan Wilson about Gareth Southgate, the fact that England don’t know their best team, and why Ken can’t see Scotland losing to England.
The benefits of being boring. https://t.co/d2V9cf7759

We also discuss Ken’s excitement levels, likeable Declan Rice and the betrayal of Spain’s great football history.

Really good episode and explanation of the situation with the Copa América (really good evisceration of the bullshit reasons for booing the taking of the knee too). https://t.co/VmdYoD7wq1
