Against All Odds, Argentina Survives. Plus Jake Walerius On World Cup Fan Groups

Planet Fútbol with Grant Wahl - June 26, 2018 - 32:05

Grant and Brian discuss Argentina's miraculous survival in Group D after Marcos Rojo's late goal brought the Argentines back from the dead and knocked Nigeria out of the tournament. Meanwhile, Brian laments having to be at France and Denmark's 0-0 tie, by far the dullest game of Russia 2018, that saw both teams advance from Group C. Then Grant interviews FanSided's Jake Walerius about his work writing about different national fan bases at this World Cup. One question: Why are European fans being so outnumbered at a World Cup in Europe by fans from Latin America?
