OTP Euro 2012 Podcast – July 1st: Final Countdown
With Ben all footballed-out, he’s gone to get away from it all in the last place anyone would be talking about Euro 2012: Scotland.
So it’s fallen to Alex and Paddy to wade back through the tense, swampy waters of both semi finals, and look ahead to the crystal clear lagoon of tonight’s Spain vs Italy final.
In a slightly ramshackle show, the quality of which may or may not have been affected by having Andy Murray’s game against Marcos Baghdatis on TV in the background, our two Euro newshounds pick apart the two Mediterranean rivals. Most importantly of all, they answer the question that literally all of Europe is asking: just how does Andrea Pirlo get his hair looking that good?
Elsewhere, there’s a quick chat on David Beckham’s Olympic omission, job interview tips (though perhaps not for French managers heading to Spurs after a Euros tournament), and why Michel Plantini’s hare-brained schemes mean we could all be living it up in Helsinki, Madrid AND St. Petersburg at Euro 2020.
Love goals but always find yourself short of time? Then watch the below and enjoy every strike scored at the tournament so far in under three minutes. Taking an ice bath afterwards is optional, but recommended.
David Beckham showing that he maybe hasn’t taken his omission from the GB Olympic team so well – apparently pinging shots at injured players whilst they’re on the floor isn’t one of the Olympic ideals.
