Episode 2516: Messi’s Laces, Mbappe And The Media, Infantino Boasts, FAI’s Da Vinci Code, Pauw Allegations
It’s our mega World Cup final preview show – with Ken, Gavin Cooney and Damien Delaney all aboard.
We all mainly agree on what we’d like to see happen on Sunday, but does wishing make it so?
Ken reports from Infantino’s World Cup review press conference (Newsflash – everything is awesome), and we talk about allegations made against Vera Pauw by the United States’ National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) following a 14-month investigation into Pauw and other leading figures in US soccer.
Plus there’s the FAI’s Da Vinci Code, Frances’ tv guide, Duffer on Messi, and John Giles on Mbappe and the media.

It’s independent, commercial-free and member-led with feature interviews, breaking news, Ken’s Football Show, Richie Sadlier’s Player’s Chair, The Politics Podcast, The “I’ll Tell You Who Wrote It” Book Club and lots of added extras.

Talk of Jorge Valdano, the libero role, wine tasting, the French Ambassador’s residence and @PhilippeAuclair on the line made this the classiest Second Captains episode of all timehttps://t.co/uR3iDEXOch pic.twitter.com/aoJD31Yuvn
