The FIFA World Cup tournament officially kicked off earlier this week and hosts John Doyle and Sonja Missio have lots to talk about this episode,  starting with Canada’s bitter 1-0 loss to Belgium and Alphonso Davies’ missed penalty shot. Former Canadian national team star Diana Matheson joins us to break down Canada’s performance in their first game and what their strategy might be going forward. Plus, John and Sonja delve into other results from the first round of the group stage - including favourite moments and current controversies. And later in the episode, John speaks to Simon Kuper, the bestselling author of the book Soccernomics, about this World Cup and how data hasn't really revolutionized the sport.
