Jimbo, Tim Spiers and Adrian Clarke gather to summarise Day 8 of the World Cup as Germany stay alive.

It’s all about the supersubs for Spain and Germany as the spoils are shared in Qatar. Is Niclas Fullkrug the long awaited answer to Hansi Flick’s striking problems?

Morocco upset underwhelming Belgium in Group F. Maher Mezahi joins us to celebrate manager Walid Regragui.

Canada become the second team to exit the competition after defeat to Croatia. They’re creative but why were they naive? And are we underestimating the 2018 finalists?

Plus we look ahead to Monday’s action as Oliver Zesiger tells us why we should be talking more about Switzerland as they prepare to face Brazil.

Produced by Charlie Jones.
