Episode 301: Sweet relief as Argentina scramble out of their World Cup group

For the three hundred and first episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam and Andrés are celebrating after Argentina’s last-gasp 2-1 win over Nigeria saw them through Group D of the 2018 World Cup in second place behind Croatia, and into a second round tie against France. Were the players really picking the team? Was Javier Mascherano awful or amazing? Is Marcos Rojo the greatest footballer of all time? All these questions and more are up for consideration.

Episode 300: Argentina’s Croatian collapse, and how to get out of the rut

The three hundredth episode of Hand Of Pod is a less celebratory affair than we’d hoped for such a landmark, with Sam and English Dan picking over the bones of Argentina’s second half catastrophe against Croatia, which leaves them needing to beat Nigeria – possibly comfortably – on Tuesday if they’re going to advance. We ask what needs to change, when these problems first took root.

Thanks to all our listeners for sticking with us through 300 episodes. We hope you continue to enjoy the show!
