Colombia-Brazil Preview

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When tackles fly in
and they’re vicious and hard
on James
will officials have brought a red card?
And when Fred, in the box,
all alone, takes a dive,
will a kick from the spot
keep Brazilians alive?

Notes

As of July 1, Brazil had 8 yellow cards, tied for most in the tournament. Colombia had 3. Germany fewest with 2. Here’s hoping the officials understand that only they can make Brazil, great footballing nation though it may be, favourites in this quarterfinal. TM
