Episode 4: 1982 Men's Brazil National Soccer Team

So the mighty soccer juggernaut Trinidad and Tobago just prevented the United States Men's Soccer team from qualifying for the World Cup, but fear not. Even the best country in the history of soccer has failed...but in the actual World Cup, and they are thought of as possibility one of the best teams ever. 

Play beautiful and lose, or play ugly and win. That was the dilemma facing the the 1982 Men's Brazil National Soccer team in the World Cup. They played a fan friendly, entertaining game, but Italy done gone went pragmatic, knocking them out of the tournament in the second group stage. Rodrigo goes on ten minute diatribe on how cable TV contracts changed soccer (while Brian takes a nap) and Brian learns about Kaká. Come find out if Rodrigo and Brian can rectify this upset of historic proportions. Episode 4 is going to be real Kaká!
