1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Brazil is overrated by Brazilians,
Portugal, the same, by Portuguese.
Greece may not go through, but Greeks are like this too.
May England have some more fans like this, please?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Uruguay will soar from Uruguayans
waving flags until the bitter end,
Mexico, supported since the Mayans,
while English doubt each time their team defends.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Germany, uplifted by the Germans,
Switzerland is buoyed by all the Swiss,
but watch an England match and you’ll hear sermons
surrounding all the penalties they miss.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 This time try to be more optimistic;
this time just a bit more Pollyanna.
Of the two approaches, it is this trick,
that made Ghanaians fall in love with Ghana.
