Argentina v Nigeria.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Messi finally breaks his duck,
With a cracking first half strike
Moses evens honours up
Via VAR and mike.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Another nailed on pen is turned down…again
The Nigerians lose their cool
Looked to me like a stonewall pen
Didier and Rio thought so too.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Rojo finds his mojo, landing the killer blow
Argentina struggle through
While a bloated icon losing his self-control
Will almost undoubtedly…grab the back-page news
For sweet F.A. to do with the game, as he’s often prone to do?

Notes

I feel Nigeria should and could have won this game. Never mind about the clear penalty that wasn’t given, their composure in front of goal left a lot to be desired, and it cost them dearly. Nice to finally see a pen given for WWF/Common Assault type defending as well. Maybe now the likes of Javier Mascherano (who’s made a career out of this kind of strong-arm stuff in the box) and his ilk might get the message at long last? Oh yeah and shouldn’t your man have been sent off, of the field of play to get a bleeding wound attended to? Just a thought.

All this and France v Argentina to come…blinding.

Stay well, be lucky and keep smiling.

Peace.
