Desert Foxes tame Lions– England 0-0 Algeria

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 From the habitual slow starters
Fans sought a three point gift
Desert Foxes tamed Lions
England lying somewhat adrift

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Capello’s men laboured at Green Point
Within their own Cape Fear
Muffled by Bougherra and co
In a game of very little cheer

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Selfless Heskey toiled away
Stevie G strived hard to ignite
Yebda was more than a thorn
Karim Ziani just ran all night

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Added snub for inventive Joe Cole
Whereas Rooney ran out of puff
Lionheart Carra out of the next
Nil, nil not quite enough

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Homecoming of the lynchpin
Barry returned to shield
His languid teammates heaved
Roundly booed off the field

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Treated to a glimpse of Wayne’s world
Response to the fans poor review
Roo snapped at the camera
“It’s nice to see your home fans booing you”

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Belhadj had spelt out the target
“Defence is England’s weak point”
David James between the sticks
Keeper M’Bolhi didn’t disappoint

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 “Goals” said skipper Gerrard
Crucial to be home and dry
Not the England he knew said the Gaffer
Beat Slovenia or wave goodbye

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Worse still as security breached
Slipping past stadium checks
English fan in the changing room
To confront and say hi to Becks
