    Spain v Russia.

    I’m backing The (former) USSR(sic)
    In the shoot-out
    Buenas Noches Espana.

    Denmark v Croatia

    A lottery
    Morphed into refereed psychology
    Denmark succumb to […]

    France v Argentina

    Mbappe sur une Kyllian spree
    Inspires Les Bleus pour gagner 4-3
    (Thought I’d chance me arm, at a bit of the old Francais)
    T’was a tres magnifique sight to watch
    Till I screamed selfishly, […]

    Majorca reports on a spate of late bookings I hear?
    Unheard of – from Lufthansa – for the time of the year
    Lidl’s flown in extra sauerkraut, bratwurst und bier
    Tis even being said one can guarantee a […]

    After pointing his digit at team-mates
    Who disappeared in the previous game
    Mats Hummel’s wasted enough chances to put this one away
    So it’s down to him now, to shoulder the blame.

    Their sweeper keeper […]

    Messi finally breaks his duck,
    With a cracking first half strike
    Moses evens honours up
    Via VAR and mike.

    Another nailed on pen is turned down…again
    The Nigerians lose their cool
    Looked to me like a […]

    Can’t say I’m a Shakespeare fan
    Strikes me as kinda daft
    Yet I sat through Portugal/Iran
    Thinking…this is bordering on farce?

    If it wern’t for Lawro’s blinding commo?
    Having me in fits
    I’d vote to scrap […]

    Pekerman,
    Finally breaks his press silence,
    After his team more than walk the walk…

    He talks the talk
    Dedicating victory
    To the boy sent off in the first game.

    Meanwhile over at, “The Elephant”
    In […]

    Knock Panama into a cocked hat,
    I raise my cap to Gareth and the chaps.

    Just back from Austin, Texas
    (Somewhat jet-lagged from the flight)
    Where a local press deemed the Mexican teams chance of success,
    After their highly publicized prep, at the very best…slight.

    I’m reminded […]

    Against a late onslaught from ten man Germany
    Valiant Sweden collapse in a heap – at the death – on the floor
    After running out of Ikeas defensively
    Perhaps…they should have stuck to a flat-pack four?

    Belgique, out muscle Tunisia
    Who manage to beat Top Cat twice,
    Yet if they’d left on their in form finisher
    The Golden Boot could have been his prize tonight?

    Ingerland’s defence is another story
    In the […]

    A sigh of deep relief
    Released on Copacabana Beach
    Fills the air as Nay Ma swoops to score
    Yet yer man was the proverbial mile off-side
    As camera angles on the half-way line
    Clearly show yet are blatantly […]

    Cuckoo about to coo for time
    Shaqiri sprints towards the line
    With deft precision strikes a blinding goal
    It’s two-one on the night
    On this cutting edge performance…one just might
    Clock the fact The Swiss […]

    Lose it, and the game
    It’s looking awful…Messi.

    Spain v Iran

    Iran
    Ran and ran
    Though the first halfs game plan
    Failed pretty miserably.

    Then a cruel twist of fate
    Snatched scant chance of victory away
    Proving it clearly wasn’t their day
    Courtesy of […]

    I’m watching well dodgy handshakes
    In the presidents box
    They look like two punters – in the wrong seats – at our place
    Sitting there looking lost.

    Trying to get poetic
    Tis after all…the opening […]

    An able Kane nets a deuce
    Ingerland produce
    Inspiring a nation-wide roar
    and but for a – it seemed to me –
    VeryAverageReferee
    Yer man could have bagged three or four!

    A word on the interesting […]

    Watching MotD last night
    (One minus Lineker, so a bit of alright)
    It suddenly struck during viewing
    This managerial lark is a shoo in
    If one is subtle, and one’s timing is right?

    Forget die ausreden b […]

    Like some lumberjack hipster
    From London’s gentrified East-end
    He entered the fray from the bench
    Stuck a swift deuce away
    Straight up saved the day
    Cynics amongst us enthused,
    (Me included to boot)
    Bout r […]

    In a pub – I occasionally frequent – t’other night
    No sooner had I stepped inside
    I heard – two usually charming – blue-rinses
    Having imbibed three or four Guinness’s
    Being told by the land-lord,
    “Any more […]
