On today’s pod: Anyone for tennis?! No – sorry – we’re a football podcast aren’t we?!
Not for the first time, the Ballon d’Or awards have caused some controversy – not in terms of the winner – congratulations to Spain’s Aitana Bonmatí – but by scheduling it in a women’s international window. Many of the players shortlisted couldn’t attend … but it’s OK, Novak Djokovic could!
We’ll dive into that as the second round of Nations League fixtures reach their conclusion – as well as rounding up all the international action and heading to South America.
Meanwhile, Luis Rubiales has been banned from football for three years. You’ll be unsurprised to know he’s appealing against that decision.
We discuss all that, preview next week’s WSL fixtures, plus take your questions.
We’ll be back next week to analyse a fascinating weekend of domestic action.
