sppodsmOn this episode of the Soccer Pod, GC is joined by David Griggs as we recap the first two days of Copa Mundial 2014. We take a look at Brazil-Croatia, Spain-Holland, Chile-Australia, and Mexico-Cameroon, and discuss the positives and negatives for each team. We also talk about the implications of Spain’s 5-1 defenestration at the hands of the Oranje, and whether this finishes them off in the competition or not.

We then look forward to the weekend set of games, and give previews of Colombia-Greece, England-Italy, Argentina-BIH, and all the other contests. Finally, we discuss the officiating controversy that has cropped up thus far in the World Cup, and whether it matters to the degree that people have said that it does.
