The World Cup Wrap-Up
Each day during the World Cup, our very own Jack Grimse is hosting the World Cup Wrap-Up on KRNU radio. You can listen live tomorrow morning at 8 AM Central time (2 PM UK time) by going here and clicking on KRNU2. And below you’ll find this morning’s episode!
Any Villa players involved?
Of course! Today marks the much-anticipated 2014 World Cup debut of everyone's favorite Villan: Philipe Senderos! At least he's got a better chance of seeing the pitch than does Brad Guzan. If he does make it on, Senderos will have to contend with an Ecuadorian team that can be brutal on the counterattack.
That said, it's a chance for us to scout Senderos doing for Switzerland what he'll most likely be doing for Villa: sitting on the bench.
Any transfer targets or rival players I'm probably interested in?
Well, Lionel Messi of course. He's a Villa target, right? No? Okay then. There's no one else here with whom Villa have been seriously linked. I'd say that Villa should look into the Honduran forward named Carlo, but he's too Costly. Did we mention Philippe Senderos?
How do I watch these games?
In the UK you can use ITV or the ITV player online. In the US it's ESPN in English and Univision in Spanish, and both have online streaming platforms, while our Canadian friends have CBC and the CBC Sports player. If you live elsewhere, check LiveSoccerTV for listings in your country.
