We needed to keep our hopes alive,
but we were felled by a theatrical dive.
In our defence we didn’t really have one,
little wonder the Russians won.
Yes, Rooney floored an opponent,
but did you see how far he went?
He wasn’t technically fouled in the area,
another blunder – this gets scarier.
A stunning dive accross the line…
no, not Robinson, the Russian’s crime.
Robinson hardly saved the day,
though he went (slowly) the right way.
As for the awful second goal,
after a weak parry, we’re in a hole.
McClaren said “we tried our best”
but that’s an insult to the English crest.
