Euan McCabe, author of World Cup Baby joins Graeme Hill for another dissection of the latest Football World Cup tournament and its brilliant but messy history.

Mr McCabe and Graeme reflect on the savage encounter of 1962 between Italy and Chile - the dirtiest game of World Cup football ever played.

Plus, Germany’s Miracle at Bern in 1954 against one of the greatest teams ever assembled and the first time the German National anthem was played since World War 2.

Take a look at Euan's World Cup diary here.
