Copa América preview special: Brazil

Hand Of Pod Brazil special
L-R standing: Caetano; English Dan; Sam. Sitting: Seba; Aussie Dan

In the third of our special Copa América previews, the Hand Of Pod crew welcome Caetano to English Dan’s Caballito abode, and much hilarity ensues. He endears himself to the listeners of this Argentine football-based podcast by slagging off Argentine football (well, he is Brazilian), and at one point actually kicks our resident Argentine, Seba (though this sadly wasn’t picked up by the dictaphone). Ahead of this week’s first leg of the Copa Libertadores final, we also get a few brief thoughts from Caetano, who’s a Santos fan. Click play to find out more about the defending Copa América champions, and how they’ve changed under Mano Menezes since Dunga left as manager following last year’s World Cup.
