The new Ecuador manager Jordi Cruyff joins Mani Djazmi, Pat Nevin and Heather O'Reilly to discuss the challenge that he faces in trying to qualify the country for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and Barcelona's decision to replace Ernesto Valverde with Quique Setien. Former Nigeria striker Peter Odemwingie takes a break from the golf course to talk about the Africa Cup of Nations reverting back to January for next year's competition in Cameroon. And the team discuss the news that the Scottish FA are set to ban children under 12 from heading the ball in training, due to fears over the links between football and dementia.
