Episode 65: Messi leads Argentina to a win, Tigre v San Lorenzo preview and more

The sixty-fifth episode of Hand Of Pod is another long one, because we have plenty to discuss. Sam, Dan and Dan are joined by Mariano, a San Lorenzo fan whose Twitter you can find here, to talk about Argentina’s Lionel Messi-inspired 4-0 World Cup Qualifying win over Ecuador on Saturday, how Alejandro Sabella’s doing so far with the national team, and look forward to this weekend’s friendly in New Jersey against Brazil. Then we get onto the real, earth-shaking stuff: previewing Mariano’s team San Lorenzo’s visit on Sunday to Tigre, a huge relegation clash given both sides’ standings in the table. We also look at All Boys midfielder Hugo Barrientos’ drug bust, and the Copa Argentina semi-finals (we’ll preview the final in more detail later on). Enjoy.
