Russia Eliminates Spain and Croatia Advances Over Denmark; Plus Ian Wright of Fox Sports

Planet Fútbol with Grant Wahl - July 1, 2018 - 27:37

Brian joins Grant from Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium, where he covered Russia's stunning elimination of Spain on penalty kicks to advance to the World Cup 2018 quarterfinals. It wasn't a great day of games, but the high-stakes drama of penalty kicks was palpable in both as a subpar Croatia still advanced over Denmark. Then Grant interviews Ian Wright, who's covering the World Cup for Fox Sports and other global outlets. They talk about England-Colombia and Ian's pride over the success of his son, Bradley Wright-Phillips, with the New York Red Bulls.
