As a Fan.... Season 2, Episode #07: Copas wrap up, and Gold Cup first round

We are wrapping up the Finals of Copa Europa and Copa America. England v Italy gave us a good Sunday game but far from the expectations. England's lack creativity found themselves up 1-0 in the 2nd minute, but as Italy settle into the game the game quickly move one-way and Italy was in full control of game. Argentina v Brazil gave us a bad Saturday game but exactly what we expected from these two countries. Brazil was looking to control the game but Argentina was closing all the channels and shutting down all transitions, while Argentina was sloppy in the final third; and with a brilliant pass from De Paul, or terrible mistake by Lodi, Di Maria score the only goal of the game. In the end the Football/Soccer Gods gave Messi his first senior trophy with Argentina, does this cement his 7th Ballon D'Or? Finally we come back to North America to where we have now seen all the teams play at least 1 game. Diving into the big teams, poor planning, and surprises for this Gold Cup. To end the episode we talk about the Mexico fans homophobic chant and the mess that it is, and the issues it will cost the Mexico Federation. Listen to the thoughts of both of us on this matter, but ultimately this NEEDS TO STOP IMMEDIATELY, and consequences need to be set to anyone doing this to set a precedent. Beer of episode: Quaff On!
