    In the gap between the international games and the return of the Premier League, Ant McGinley, Joel Tudor and Marley Anderson find themselves discussing health, the environment and physics, all through football. Firstly prompted by a meeting happening today which is expected to lead to 5 substitutes being the norm from next season, they ask if there is any argument for keeping it at three, and if they do change, why stop there? We expect that Manchester United flying out to Australia pre-season will generate a lot of criticism in terms of a carbon footprint, but in terms of the brand, and the opportunities for fans to see their favourite teams, is this going to become a regular occurrence. And with the ball for the World Cup in Qatar being revealed, we wonder just how much science can go into a ball, and take a little nostalgia trip to discuss some of our favourites.

    Ant McGinley, Joel Tudor and Marley Anderson look back over a busy night of international football. First up, it was a comfortable night for the Three Lions at Wembley as they beat The Ivory Coast 3-0. Jude Bellingham was outstanding, but Harry Maguire had to contend with booing from his own fans. Elsewhere Mo Salah was blinded by laser pointers and missed a penalty as Senegal booked their place at Qatar 2022 at Egypts expense, and Portugal overcame North Macedonia thanks to the United combination of Fernandes and Ronaldo. Finally, Christian Eriksen has been making headlines again, returning to the stadium where he collapsed last summer, to show he is back to his best with another goal. Brentford will hope to seethis form continue for them in the Premier League. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
