Learn English Through Football Podcast: Nasty Challenge - Podcast – Languagecaster.com
2 days ago
It’s international week again, with World Cup 2018 qualifiers being held across the globe. This means we have no Premier League predictions this week, but we will have a few thoughts on who we think will be relegated and who will secure top-four Champions League places. Of course, we have some good, bad and ugly news from the world of football, including a nasty challenge in the Ireland v Wales match. After that, we will talk about two phrases for football, one, the cliche ‘not that kind of player‘ and the other, a daisy cutter. Read the transcript for the show in our post below (Damian = DF, Damon = DB).

DF: As you’ve already mentioned, last week we did not have a podcast but we are back this week and we will be looking at some of the World Cup qualifiers that have taken place this weekend. Damon, what else is on the show today?
DB: Well Damian, as you said, there are World Cup qualifiers and international friendlies taking place, we don’t have our regular Premier League predictions at the end of the show, but we will finish with a bit of chat about relegation
