2018 World Cup: Review of Week 1 – the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Transcript of the show (19th June 2018)

After six days, the first round of matches are now over at the 2018 World Cup. We have seen all 32 countries in action and so we thought it would be a good time to have a brief review of what’s been good, bad and ugly at the tournament so far.

The Good

It’s been a very good start to the 2018 World Cup for   a lot of confidence to make it though to the knock-out stages.
