It’s England v Germany and the return of the EFL

Jimbo welcomes Duncan Alexander, Tim Spiers and Matt Davies-Adams into the pod ahead of a bumper weekend of football action.

England look to make history as they face Germany at Wembley in the Euro 22 final. Can the Lionesses stop Popp? And should super-sub Russo start?

The Community Shield isn’t really exciting our panel, so we discuss some alternative curtain-raisers instead.

The return of the EFL is a lot more exciting as Kompany and Bellamy take charge at Turf Moor, Wilder looks to bring Boro up and Derby prepare for life in the third tier.

Plus Dybala, McNeil and our favourite back-heel goals.
