Meanwhile, Rebecca is giddy over England’s six (!) goals against Iran and in awe of Jude Bellingham. Plus: Rebecca and Brendan dive in on the “One Love”–armband controversy, the Iranian team’s brave stand, Jack Grealish’s touching goal tribute, and that inescapable Peyton Manning–David Beckham commercial.
