My word. My. Word. What a World Cup that was! Here at the Football Fives podcast we like to look back on major international tournaments, what with them being the pinnacle of the sport and that, and when a new tournament's happened we just dive right in straight away. This is the F5 World Cup 2018 retrospective episode!

Daniel Storey, David Hartrick, Ryan Keaney and Chris Nee are back together to revisit a competition that seemed to capture a whole load of imaginations. We begin with an assessment of England's performance in Russia, and then rattle through a ton of highlights: our favourite goals, favourite games and memories we just ay gon' shake.

And, as is customary, we'll ask whether the right team won the competition. Did France, under Didier Deschamps, truly deserve to take home that wonderful trophy? Is Deschamps a fitting third member of the exclusive player-and-manager champion club? Or was there some other side who deserved it more?

Oh, right. Podcast. Yes, it's the second half of the Football Fives World Cup 2018 preview, covering five key questions about the teams that make up the second half of the draw. We've made a substitution for this rattle through Groups E to H - Chris Nee returns to replace Daniel Storey because, apparently, it's a busy time to be a football writer.

Chris joins David Hartrick and Ryan Keaney to talk about Brazil's psychological steel, Germany's complacency or otherwise, Belgium being Belgium, England's prospects and the rather wonderful prospect of six Group H matches for the ages.

The World Cup starts next week. You might have heard about it. After a few weeks of unexpected absence we're back to show off just how excited we are about the flagship event of our sport. We're down to three because Chris Nee only talks about England now and England don't play a part in this week's Football Fives Podcast.

That's because this is the first half of our World Cup preview. Daniel Storey, David Hartrick and Ryan Keaney discuss Groups A to D by way of a question about each one, and round off the show by asking whether the tournament winners will come from this half of the draw.

So, if you're wondering who qualifies with France, how bad Russia could be, whether Argentina will slip up and whether Spain and Portugal can be prevented from getting through, look no further. We'll be back next week with part two.
