    France 4-2 Croatia

    spoiling things again
    VAR the villain here
    on this final night

    never lying down
    oh how brave Croatia fought
    when injustice reigned

    never at their best
    once again Les Bleus […]

    when we pause we know
    like some epic video
    we have far to go

    games like this are hard
    damage limitation time
    with a stronger foe

    meaningless to some
    I know we’d have taken fourth
    at the very […]

    no time now for tears
    we went further than we hoped
    so much to applaud

    from euphoria
    to the first cold light of day
    let us not be sad

    time to stand up proud
    chances come and chances go
    we will learn […]

    France 1-0 Belgium

    on a Summer’s night
    promising so much in class
    two great sides lock horns

    in among such stars
    like some Winter Russian sky
    Mbappe burns bright

    Red Devils impress
    Hazard b […]

    he used to be compared sometimes
    to Gobbo out of Noddy
    he’d stand their all close shaven
    his look was never shoddy
    it came together suddenly
    it altered points of view
    a manager type masterstroke
    brought […]

    there’s a question that’s burning inside me
    and it’s burning inside you I’m sure
    we’ve been hoping and longing for years now
    and we’ve felt it a few times before
    now the pundits are rating our chances
    and […]

    The World Cup in America, nineteen ninety four,
    USA – Colombia, do you recall the score?
    While over in the Rose Bowl, with fever running high,
    back on the streets, of Medellin, it’s near to do or die. […]

    You can run but you can’t hide forever.

    But again… how brave will they be with regard to sentencing?
