The Euro 2016 final is nearly upon us, and the implications of Sunday's final form the backbone of discussion on the new Planet Futbol Podcast. Host Avi Creditor, SI senior writer Grant Wahl, and's Brian Straus and Ben Lyttleton discuss what the final means for Cristiano Ronaldo's legacy, and what kind of impact the game could have on the race for the 2016 Ballon d'Or. 

The panel also assesses the state of the new, expanded Euro 2016. Did the addition of eight more teams dilute the quality of the tournament, or has the expansion resulted in enough fairytale stories to make it all worth it? Could it lead to a 40-team World Cup?
