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, Turkey—and Even Iraq—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.
