Lionel Messi Should Stop Taking Argentina's Penalties

Planet Fútbol with Grant Wahl - June 17, 2018 - 31:29

With an unexpected guest appearance from Alexi Lalas right next to the Kremlin, Grant and Brian discuss Iceland's impressive 1-1 tie against Argentina and ask whether it's time for Messi to stop taking Argentina's penalties (after failing to convert four of his last seven spot kicks for club and country). Then Grant interviews Deyna Castellanos, the Venezuelan rising star and Florida State forward who's in Russia promoting women's soccer at the World Cup under the hashtag #DareToShine.
