1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 France 0-0 China

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Shades and looks of Robert Pires
Star man Frederic Villeroux 
“I’ll sweep up,” Maya say’s
As the fans screamed Allez Les Bleus

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 China with the great Zhang LJ
Matched the French in a tough game
Faced with such fierce game play
Dragons deserved such loud acclaim 

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Baron and Zheng enter the fray
French flow free as the Loire
Eyeshades cause ripples in the Nikkei
With calmness and complete sang-froid
