Strengthening positions of strength

It's Jimbo joined by Charlie Eccleshare, Duncan Alexander, and all the way from Brazil, Tim Vickery!
And it's a Brazilian flair to the show today as we discuss favourite Brazilian footballers, club swapping Brazilian players (see Raphinha, Gabriel Jesus, Richarlison), and we talk all about the 1950 World Cup which was hosted in, that's right, Brazil - but devastatingly, not won by them. Spoilers!
It's not all about the South American continent though, we have some Adebayor nostalgia as The Athletic's Premier League Golden Games reaches number 34. We talk Alfie Devine and the England U19s, and On This Day there was a rather famous commentator's curse moment...
