Episode 129 10/15/14


pod129pic.jpgOn this week's episode....

Since Benfica was off we turn our attention to the national team. We look at Fernando Santos' first 11 and new tactical look. Also on the table, the 4 shunned players, and their effect on the national team. We spend a little time talking about the game before turning our attention to Portugal's U21 squad who qualified to the European Championship. Looking at this squad, there's no reason not to feel optimistic about the future of the national team. It may not be a golden generation but the talent pool is definitely rich in talent.

On the second half of the pod, we get back to Benfica, and look at Benfica's upcoming Portuguese Cup game against Sporting da Covilha. Perhaps a chance for some of the less used players to play, we take a stab at possible 11s.
