Podcast: FIFA election, Copa America Centenario draw

1:11 | Planet Futbol
Gianni Infantino elected new FIFA president
Thursday February 25th, 2016

The FIFA election will give the world's game a new administrative leader and the draw was finally conducted for the historic Copa América Centenario, and these two major events provide the basis for discussion on the new episode of the Planet Fútbol Podcast.

Regardless of who wins the election, will FIFA actually change? And why do executives continue to stay at the Baur au Lac hotel after arrests in the most recent FIFA gatherings?

As for Copa America, will Neymar actually participate, and if he doesn't, how does that change the outlook of the competition for both Brazil and the field? What's a reasonable expectation for the U.S. after its tough draw?

We span three continents for guests, with Grant Wahl in Zurich, Brian Straus in Washington, D.C., and James Young in Belo Horizonte, Brazil offering unique perspective on two of world soccer's biggest stories.
