Opposition research! This week we hear from journalists on three continents about the nations the U.S. U20s will face in the group stage in Poland. Vadim Furmanov, a Ukrainian-American living in North Carolina, spoke with me about Ukraine. Emmanuel Chinaza, a reporter in Lagos, spoke with me about Nigeria. And Babagol founder Uri Levy spoke with me from Tel Aviv about the Qatari U20s. I should mention up front that the audio from my conversation with Emmanuel is spotty in sections. I did my best to smooth it over and encourage you to stick with us, but as always, please use the show notes for navigation if you want to skip around.
