DB: You’re listening to Languagecaster.com’s football-language podcast. Hi there everyone and welcome to the Learn English Through Football podcast; the podcast for all those who love the beautiful game of football and who are aiming to improve their English language skills. Now, my name is Damon and I am based in Tokyo, Japan, which is of course holding the rugby World Cup at the moment – rugby, the distant cousin of football, is not as popular here, but the excitement is beginning to build among the locals, especially as Japan won the opening game 30-10 against Russia on Friday. Of course, we have had Champions League group stage games this week and I wonder if Damian in London saw any? I saw Napoli versus Liverpool, ouch, and PSG against Real Madrid, as well as a bit of AtlĂ©tico Madrid’s draw with Juventus. Damian, how are you? Are you excited about the rugby and what football have you seen?

DF: Hello Damon, hello everyone. Yes, I am watching the opening weekend of the rugby – some great games yesterday and a nice win for Ireland today…
