sppodsmOn this episode of the SportsPolitik World Cup podcast series, we split things in two, starting with Lee Delvechhio and GC chatting about the games from Sunday. We talk about the troubles that Ecuador had putting things together and the opportunism of the Swiss, the horrific nature of Honduras and the quality (and concerns) about France, and the positive outlooks for both Argentina and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Following that, we chat with David Griggs and preview Germany-Portugal and USA-Ghana. Are the Germans under extra pressure to accomplish something in this cycle? Does Portugal have a chance against the Germans? How with the weather in Natal affect the USA-Ghana game? Who inspires the most (and least) confidence on this USA roster?
