Throughout the World Cup, Slate’s sports podcast Hang Up and Listen will have a special treat: a podcast extra from our soccer-obsessed friends at Howler Magazine.

In today’s episode of Dummy, David Goldblatt, Danny Karbassiyoon, and George Quraishi talk about the United States advancing to the knockout stages of the World Cup. Alexander Abnos, who is with the team writing for ussoccer.com, reports from the stadium following the U.S. loss to Germany in Recife. The panel chews on the Luis Suárez incident, the best and worst of the group stage, and what is ahead in the tournament. With Ramadan and the knockout rounds beginning on Saturday, George speaks with Shireen Ahmed, an advocate for Muslim athletes, about some of the challenges faced by Muslim players.
