Welcome to the World Cast! Hot Time in Old Town’s World Cup podcast. In this episode, Ruben and Alex preview the group stage and get you ready for the month-long journey in West Asia. They start by going over the USMNT roster and attempt to figure out who’s going to start up top and on the wings, as well as what their ideal XI is. They then go group by group talking about the teams and who will survive to the knockout stage. There are some spicy hot takes here, and you don’t want to miss out on which big teams they think are going out in groups!
But before all of that, there was a bit of MLS news they had to discuss. The pricing of the Apple TV deal was released and both Ruben and Alex have some thoughts (The WC preview starts at 10:52 if you want to skip the MLS media talk).
All of that plus what is going to be the most entertaining game of the group stage on this preview edition of the World Cast.
