Dutch destroyers: Uruguay 2-3 Netherlands

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Rumble in old Cape Town
Upon whose head the radiant gown
Van Marwijk’s golden crown?
Or Tabarez’ halo of renown?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Hail a total first half screamer
Armoured trident from a schemer
Jousting Gio with a steamer
Explosion roused the daydreamer

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Rising to Van Bronkhorst’s task
August assassin in a ski mask
Marksman Forlan revelled in the bask
With a Bullet straight from the cask

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Oranje tuned in tuned out
Wesley scored the finishing grout
Robben leapt and sprang like a trout
Old chrome dome put it beyond doubt

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Accra blew the Dutch bugle call
When Pereira struck late to recall
Charrúa can still stand tall
Whilst Tulips evoke Total Voetbal

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Confetti after Green Point’s exam
Boulahrouz awarded the Mega slam
Van Persie danced the street jam
Mild revelry erupts in Amsterdam
