Episode 2715: England In World Cup Final, Matildas Moment, Chelsea’s Amazing Accounting, Connemara Controversy
England have reached the Women’s World Cup final and on Sunday they have the chance to become simultaneous European and World Champions, as their coach Sarina Wiegman continues to build quite an incredible managerial CV. We get immediate reaction from Miguel Delaney at Stadium Australia and look forward to the final against Spain, a team both at war, and in love with itself.
We talk to Rohan Connolly in Melbourne as he reflects on the profound impact the tournament has had on Australia on the sporting and cultural levels.
Plus there’s Chelsea’s Amazing Accounting, Controversy in the lakes of Controversy and Murph has yet another pop at people who walk at speed.
