On this week’s football podcast for learners of English,, as always, we have three sections. First, in the main report section, Damon talks about the rivalry between the two teams from the city of Liverpool, Everton FC and Liverpool FC. After that, in our regular English for football section, we introduce the football phrase ‘to want it more’, which has become a pundits’ cliche. In the last section of the show, we finish with our predictions battle, which this week includes big derbies from the Premier League – including the Merseyside derby, as well as the big game in Argentina between Boca Juniors and River Plate.
