Podcast: Messi, Summer of Soccer in SI; Champions League final

11:53 | Planet Futbol
The World of Messi
Thursday May 26th, 2016

As one New York radio personality has made perfectly clear, there are 11(!) pages of soccer in this week's Sports Illustrated magazine in the build-up to Copa America Centenario and Euro 2016. Lionel Messi is front and center, as is Chicharito, and the Summer of Soccer is on the horizon.

Grant Wahl discusses the big soccer spread and his experiences working with Messi for our cover story and total package on the Barcelona and Argentina superstar with Maggie Gray on our latest podcast.

With Copa America around the corner, we also focus on the U.S. men's national team, which looks to build on Wednesday's 1-0 win over Ecuador in a tournament tune-up for both sides.

There's also the matter of Saturday's Champions League final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. Which Spanish capital club will wind up ruling Europe?
