The Guardian’s Jonathan Wilson is one of the most influential soccer
writers in the English-language world, whose ability to explain the
tactical side of the game has changed the way the game is covered. âOn
today’s podcast, the author of Sunderland: A Club Transformed, Behind
the Curtain, and Inverting the Pyramid joins us to discuss two other
areas of expertise – Eastern European football and African football –
as we continue profiling the nations competing in this summer’s World
Cup. In this interview, we cover Nigeria, Algeria, Ghana, Cameroon and
Cote d’Ivoire as well as Slovenia, Serbia, and Slovakia. We also
discuss his latest work, released last week – The Anatomy of England: A
History in Ten Matches.
On tomorrow’s edition of the podcast,
BBC’s North American football correspondent Sean Wheelock will join us
to conclude our experts’ series as we cast special focus on Group C,
England, and the United States.
