via press release:
E:60 Features World Cup Special May 13 (8p.m. ET on ESPN)
With less than a month until the start of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, ESPN’s primetime newsmagazine devotes an entire show to some of the biggest names and best stories in the beautiful game. Features will include a rare interview with Argentina’s superstar Lionel Messi, a profile of perhaps the greatest player of all-time Pelé as he travels across two continents, and the very personal backstory of US Men’s team captain Clint Dempsey. In addition, there will be an investigative piece by Jeremy Schaap looking into preparations for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Observers estimate that under current conditions, by 2022 over 4,000 workers will die in the effort to build Qatar’s World Cup infrastructure.
