On The Steppe: Big team casualties, previewing the World Cup quarter-finals, and Andy's back!

Rejoice! The full complement of OTCers are back! Andy is once again welcomed into the fold having returned from Russia following Portugal's exit at the hands of Uruguay.


On this week's show, we discuss what's next for the big teams that have gone home early - Spain, Germany, Argentina and Portugal, before turning our attention to the quarter finals, including a chat with writer and broadcaster Kieran Pender in Moscow about Russia v Croatia and why Krasnodar weren't chosen as a host city for this year's tournament.
