Mais quels sont les enseignements principaux de cette semaine italienne pour les Bleus ? A un peu moins de quatorze mois du Mondial, que retenir ?

On today's double Pod we first look back on Cristiano Ronaldo's glorious return to Old Trafford, as Manchester United dispatched Newcastle 4-1 in the Premier League. Ronaldo was undoubtedly the star attraction but Bruno Fernandes netted a scorcher and Jesse Lingard bagged late too with Paul Pogba pulling the strings on a great day to be a Red. In the second part of the Pod we dissect United's tepid showing in the Champions League away to Young Boys. An Aaron Wan-Bissaka red card ruined a promising start - with Ronaldo netting early - and United ended up throwing the match away in time added on.

Taylor, Ryan, Graham, and Joe gather around their respective microphones to answer your lovely listener questions! From fictional club vs. national team games to what referees are looking for when they check players' cleats, there was plenty to chat about. You can find the full list of questions that we answered down below: 1) What countries have a club team in their domestic league that would beat their national team? 2) Do teams have a strategy behind their kickoffs? 3) If we there was a combined North and South American tournament, would people around the world care more than they do about the Gold Cup or the Copa America? And would that combined tournament help the USMNT? 4) When substitutes are checking in, why does the fourth official check the bottom of their cleats? 5) Watching the Euros, it seemed like Paul Pogba and Harry Maguire play better for France and England than they do for Manchester United. Why is that? 6) Why was Jaden Sancho included in Gareth Southgate's England squad at Euro 2020? Sponsors! Today's episode is brought to you by... Policygenius!
