On The Steppe: Spain lose Lopetegui, Belgium get warmed up, and Saudi Arabia look for a win

On your very first episode of our World Cup series On The Steppe, Marcus and Luke are joined in the studio by their right hand man James Horncastle to discuss Saudi Arabia's opener against Russia, Belgium's approach to their warm up games, and Uruguay under Oscar Tabarez.

They're also joined by Jonathan Wilson on the phone from Ekaterinburg ahead of the aforementioned Uruguay's Group A game against Egypt, and Andy Brassell gives us an update from inside the Portugal camp ahead of their game against the self-destructing and managerless Spain.
