Defending World Cup Champion Germany Is Out—and Mexico Is In. Plus Kelly Smith of Fox Sports.

Planet Fútbol with Grant Wahl - June 28, 2018 - 40:03

Grant and Brian discuss the remarkable finish that saw defending World Cup champion Germany eliminated from World Cup 2018—the fourth time in five occasions that the defending champion has gone out in the group stage—and saw Mexico saved by South Korea. They also talk about the game Brian attended in Moscow (Brazil 2, Serbia 0) and what it means for Brazil ahead of a knockout-round showdown with Mexico. Then Grant interviews Kelly Smith, one of England's greatest players, who discusses her work analyzing games for Fox Sports and her thoughts on the tournament, including England.
