Welcome to a brand new episode of the Arsenal Women Arsecast, the number one podcast about Arsenal Women.
In this episode of the Arsenal Women Arsecast, Tim is joined by regular co-presenter Alex Ibaceta for a Spanish themed episode. First, Alex gives her insight on the signing of Laia Codina from Barcelona before Tim and Alex segue into talking about the Women’s World Cup, Alex’s experiences of covering the tournament from Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, how the ‘mid-tier’ nations are closing the gap to the elite in international football and how Spain won the tournament in spite of their coach and the RFEF. Tim and Alex finish by talking about the ongoing situation with RFEF President Luis Rubiales and his refusal to go quietly.
Alex wrote a piece for the Guardian recently covering the history of internal conflict between the RFEF and the Spanish players which we would point you to to give the conversation its full context – read it here: A revolution 40 years in the making: how the Spanish women’s team fought back
