Transcript of the show
DB: You are listening to Languagecaster’s football-language podcast. Hello and welcome to the show for all those who love the game of football and who want to improve their English skills too. My name’s Damon and I’m based in Tokyo, where I got a little bit sunburnt after attending my daughter’s sport’s day, but other than that all is good over here in Tokyo and I’m looking forward to the football later today.
