The JOE World Cup Minipod #16 featuring Plan A Fellaini, the tactical genius of Roberto Martinez and Neymar’s tarnished legacy
A tactical masterpiece.
Not Roberto Martinez's words, but the words of a TV interviewer after Belgium's stunning victory against Brazil on Friday. But Martinez will be hailed as a tactical genius for the way in which the favourites were undone in Kazan.
Neymar is in danger of ruining his legacy with his commitment to diving but Brazil's failure to move beyond the quarter-finals isn't solely down to him. Roberto Firmino was wasted again and now the tournament is wide open.
England, meanwhile, are considering their options and seeing greatness in everything Gareth Southgate does, but is it merited and who is Russell Gibbs?
The JOE World Cup Minipod is here and Dion Fanning and Paddy McKenna discuss Brazil's exit, Martinez's genius and the seductive power of Gareth Southgate.
- Does anyone want France to win the World Cup?
- Are Belgium the best team left in the competition?
- Is Gareth Southgate the nicest man in England?
