Rank #1: Copa America: Messi retired?!?! And, oh yeah, Chile won.

Podcast cover
Read more

The Copa America final has come and gone, and amazingly the big news to come out of the game has nothing to do with the team that lifted the trophy at the end of the night. Lionel Messi shocked the world first by missing his penalty kick in a shootout as Argentina lost to Chile, then again by claiming that he would retire from his national team after his fourth loss in a major tournament final.
Here to break it all down the day after are SI senior writer Grant Wahl and SI.com's Brian Straus, both of whom were in the stadium as word spread of Messi's announcement. Together with host Avi Creditor, the guys talk about what impact Messi's departure will have on the Argentina national team, and whether Chile's achievement is overshadowed by the headline news.

Rank #8: A dark week for U.S. soccer; How will Jurgen Klopp fare at Liverpool?

Podcast cover
Read more

U.S. men's soccer teams endured a rough week, with the senior squad falling to Mexico in the CONCACAF Cup and U-23s failing to qualify automatically for the Olympics.
The debacles provide plenty of fodder for the new Planet Fútbol Podcast, in which SI's Avi Creditor (twitter.com/acreditor), Grant Wahl (twitter.com/grantwahl) and Liviu Bird (twitter.com/liviubird) wrap up the performances and provide some perspective for a frustrating October international fixture window for American soccer.
It's not all doom and gloom, though. North of the border, Toronto FC has secured its first playoff berth, and we pay tribute to the Reds (most notably the spectacular Sebastian Giovinco) and their drought coming to an end.
We close with some EPL manager talk, with "The Special One," Jose Mourinho, under constant fire, while "The Normal One," Jurgen Klopp, gets set for his first match on the Liverpool sidelines.
