The waiting is over and the 2014 World Cup is underway. It may not have been an opening game classic, but there were enough talking points from the Brazil-Croatia game to keep most people happy.

But we have so much more to talk about than that in Episode 68 of "There's Still Time", the AFTN Soccer Podcast.

We're bringing you a World Cup podcast with a very Vancouver Whitecaps feel and theme to it, as we talk to some Caps about their countries, the World Cup and their memories.

First up, we bring you part of Steven Beitashour's conference call from Brazil as he tells us about life with the Iranian team, looks forward to their opening game with Nigeria and shares some of his earliest and fondest World Cup memories.

Iran get underway on Monday and that game is followed by the big clash between Ghana and the US. We bring you some thoughts from both sides as Gershon Koffie gives his thoughts on the Black Stars and Erik Hurtado on the Stars and Stripes, and both players tell us what it would mean to them to play at a World Cup Finals one day.

Then it's time for some Latin flair as Pedro Morales talks Chile, nearly making the 2010 World Cup squad and his favourite World Cup memories.

If that's not enough, Jay Duke and myself take a trip down World Cup memory lane ourselves.

And there's still time to play you some snippets from something that makes every World Cup complete, "quality" official and unofficial World Cup songs.
