That has eluded him throughout his playing career.

Whether he receives the final accolade
So many wish for, which they are denied.

Deep into the San Siro night, the Germans won,
And probably deserved it. Was that Benito‘s hand
Pushing the ball out of his own area

Unseen by the pretty awful ref? The TV
Replays would confirm it all. That hand
Has still not touched the trophy
As a winner. Bad luck comes to great
As well as small.
