This World Cup has certainly lived up to the hype! In today’s pod, Earle and Mustoe preview the World Cup Semi-Finals of France-Belgium and Croatia-England. The guys also look back at the Quarter-Finals and highlight the impressive play of Lloris, Kante, Hazard, De Bruyne, Lukaku, Pickford & Trippier (among many others…)

Are you one of those who think Roberto Martinez is not a tactician, that he gets by on attacking talent?

Well, I’m not amongst your ranks right now, and the 2 Robbies are not either. Maybe there’s some pro-Rob love in there, but we digress…
