  • His broadcast partnership with former England goalkeeper Robert Green at EURO 2024
  • He and his colleagues’ perception of Portugal heading into the tournament compared to heading into the knockout rounds
  • His work on the EA Sports FC 24 (formerly FIFA) video game
  • And a surprising culinary go-to in Germany
