S2 Episode 3: Guillem Balague, Spain 0-0 South Korea (3-5 on pens)

Adam and Rob are joined from Doha by Guillem Balague, who looks back on his chapter in Against All Odds in which Spain were defied by a combination of bad luck, conspiracy and corruption - or were they?

We discuss how revisiting that game gave Guillem and many other pause for thought, and how great a role hubris and self-fulfilling prophesies might have played in the result. Guillem also looks back on his experience in Japan and South Korea covering the tournament.

As well as being a collection of the greatest writers telling the stories of the greatest upsets, Against All Odds would be one of the greatest Christmas presents and is available direct from us at halcyonpublishing.co.uk.
