Learn English through Football Podcast: 2018 World Cup Preview – Groups G and H


DB: You are listening to languagecaster.com’s football-language podcast. Hello everyone, and thank you to tim for sending that audio of some Icelandic fans and the Viking (should be Thiunder!) clap! My name’s Damon and this is the podcast for all those interested in improving their English skills and who love the beautiful game of football. We’ll be taking a brief look at groups G and H which kick off their campaign on Monday.

Stinger: You are listening to Languagecaster.com (in Icelandic).

Group G

  • England (12th)
  • Belgium (3rd)
  • Panama (55th)
  • Tunisia (21st)

England and Belgium will both be wanting to top this group. The Three Lions, England, have a young squad and will be hoping that Harry Kane, superb in the Premier League this season, can bring goals to the tournament. With Sterling and Alli, they have creativity and pace going forward, and the new back three system seems to suit the squad. After so many disappointments at World Cups and European Championships it seems as though England fans are not expecting too much. This will help the team play without the usual pressure.
