Podcast: Alexi Lalas interview; Leicester closes in on title

Thursday April 28th, 2016

If you've been watching soccer at all in recent years, you know that Alexi Lalas is a man of many opinions, and he shares a number of them with us on our new podcast. 

Lalas, the former U.S. men's national team defender and current Fox Sports 1 soccer analyst, speaks with SI's Grant Wahl in a wide-ranging interview covering a number of topics: Jurgen Klinsmann, Abby Wambach, Fox Sports' "Embrace Debate" strategy, and what it's like to have opinions on television. 

We also discuss Leicester City, which is on the cusp of winning the Premier League. Given that the Foxes could win at Old Trafford on Sunday, what is the best manner for them to win it all? In Manchester? By virtue of a Tottenham loss to Chelsea? At home next week against Everton? Wahl, Brian Straus and Avi Creditor run down the possibilities while testing the strength of the SI Jinx.
