On this episode of Soccer 101, Taylor discusses the history of soccer/football at the Olympics, and prevents some explanations for why the World Cup has so much more significance. Plus, how did eligibility requirements change over time, why was Mexico City's elevation significant in changing the foundational Olympic philosophy, and why did Eastern Bloc countries perform so well for so long?
