La última copa/The Last Cup

NPR

Lionel Messi es uno de los futbolistas más talentosos de la historia, pero tiene una deuda pendiente con su país. ¿Podrá ganar la Copa Mundial y regresar victorioso a Argentina, el lugar que dejó a sus trece años? En cinco episodios, la periodista Jasmine Garsd presenta un relato que trasciende lo deportivo. La Última Copa es tanto una biografía sonora de Messi como de millones de personas en Latinoamérica, quienes dejaron su país de origen con el sueño de volver.

What's it like to be one of the world's biggest soccer stars and doubted by many in your home country? That's the question Lionel Messi faces in The Last Cup. Not only is this year's World Cup his last chance to bring home the coveted trophy – it's his last chance for vindication. Hosted by Argentine journalist Jasmine Garsd, The Last Cup is much more than a sports story. It's a tale of immigration and race, of capitalism and class, of belonging and identity. A story for anyone who's ever felt like an outsider in their own home.
