The World Cup starts this weekend. Worldview contributor Euan Hague talks with the author of Soccernomics: Why England Loses, Why Germany and Brazil Win, and Why the U.S., Japan, Australia, Turkeyâ€”and Even Iraqâ€”Are Destined to Become the Kings of the World's Most Popular Sport. Also, WBEZ's Chip Mitchell takes us to the Cicero Mayas soccer practice, a Chicago soccer club whose teams, mostly immigrant kids, hold their own against the wealtheist suburb's top youth clubs.
