Episode 210: River’s Club World Cup campaign, AFA elections, playoff results and more

The two hundred and tenth episode of Hand Of Pod sees Sam, Andrés and Gustavo meet for a post-Hannukah (and pre-Christmas) podcast roundup of the last month in Argentine football, starting with River Plate’s runners-up spot in the Club World Cup – and some alternative ideas for a format which could produce a more equitable tournament – and then looking back at the Argentine FA’s hilarious/disastrous attempt to elect a new president earlier this month. We then give an overview of the final playoff results for the Copa Libertadores and Sudamericana qualification places, and have a quick look at Tuesday’s Libertadores group stage draw. Merry Christmas to all our listeners, and you’ll hear from us again in 2016! HOP is sponsored by Argentina Independent, a fine English-language source of news from Argentina and across Latin America.
