Podcast: Paying tribute to Johan Cruyff; USA-Guatemala

We remember the late Johan Cruyff and preview the USA's World Cup qualifying matches against Guatemala on the new Planet Fútbol Podcast.
Publish date:

The soccer world was saddened Thursday by the passing of Ajax, Barcelona and Netherlands great Johan Cruyff, who lost his battle with lung cancer at age 68. 

We begin our latest podcast with a tribute to Cruyff, as SI's Brian Straus and Grant Wahl share their memories of watching Cruyff play and offer thoughts on his profound impact on the game and undeniable legacy. 

It's an international fixture week, and the U.S. has a pair of World Cup qualifiers against Guatemala. Should the U.S. worry about Los Chapines? Why is John Brooks with the senior team instead of helping the U-23s in Olympic qualifying? Is Carlos Ruiz really still leading the line for Guatemala? Remember when U.S. fans organized Project Mayhem to disrupt Guatemala in 2000?

Wahl also speaks with Manchester United and Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini (NOTE: The conversation took place prior to this week's tragic terrorist attacks in Brussels), whose No. 1-ranked team in the world will face Portugal on Tuesday in the build-up to Euro 2016.
