23 June: DR Congo winger, Paul-José M'Poku & Video Assistant Referees

On this week's show we talk about the use of Video Assistant Referees at the Fifa Confederations Cup as the technology is being used for the first time at a major senior tournament. The VARs have ensured that correct decisions are being made, but they seem to be disturbing the flow of play. Also we talk about other proposed plans to improve the game of football, such as having 30-minute halves with the watch being stopped when the ball goes out of play. And we speak to DR Congo winger Paul-José M'Poku, who scored twice at this year's AFCON in Gabon, talking about his football  and his faith.
