Sound of Football Podcast 468 - Stop the game!

The World Cup qualifier between Brazil and Argentina in Sao Paulo descended into chaos when Brazilian health officials stopped the game after discovering that four UK based players had been included in the Argentine squad. With football authorities showing no appetite to reduce cross-border competition, are these events likely to become more commonplace?

If that wasn't enough, the return of club football sees a second Manchester United debut for Cristiano Ronaldo. A game many people would like to see but as the game is on at 3pm on Saturday it falls in the UK TV blackout, which has reignited the debate over the 60 year old TV ban. Would removing it really damage lower league football?
