We Came to Win

We Came to Win

Published by: Gimlet
14 Episodes | First Released: Apr 18 '18 | 🇺🇸
Every four years, people all over the world turn their eyes, ears, and hearts toward the most exciting sports competition on the planet: The World Cup. We Came to Win tells the stories behind the tournament’s most memorable moments. Like, how did one player become a God, and a villain, after breaking the rules? How did the semi-final of the 1990 World Cup save English soccer from falling apart? And how did one player turn a free-kick into an act of protest? This series from Gimlet Media is an homage to the triumph and heartbreak, victory and defeat that we all experience from soccer (or football, or futbol, or whatever you call it). And it reminds us that so much of what we love about the beautiful game happens off the pitch.

Great podcast

Thank you for a great podcast! The stories you told were totally new to me, but excellently told and fascincating. I hope we don't have to wait 4 years for more stories from you.

Where are the ladies at?

Would have loved to hear more from Hope Solo. Can we get a few more women’s interviews?

Beyond lame

Nothing new here, just more of the same regurgitated stories told by white men. BORING!

Bring it back!

This does not have to be just about the world cup. There is so much more to explore here. Please do more episodes. Really love this and my 6th grade son does as well. It's a great bonding experience for us.

Great storytelling!

Not a huge soccer fan, but am glad this podcast was recommended by my sister-in-law. It’s World Cup and geopolitics and culture and biography and so much more all rolled into one. Great work!

Inspiring

Excellent. For both soccer and non-soccer fans. Really exhibits the beauty of soccer. Any chance this will ever become a full time show, not just a seasonal one?

Beyond soccer

Great podcast. It’s not about soccer but rather the stories of people behind the game. It’s fantastic whether you are a soccer fan or just a sports fan.

Absolute stunner

We Came To Win is now my favorite football show and the team nails how to capture the human drama of the beautiful game. Every story easily fits into the canon of global sporting Great Moments and gives us the best fresh (American, which is rare!) take on the moment. Love it, can’t wait for a new season to kick off.
