El Diego rocks Ellis Park – Argentina 1-0 Nigeria

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Loose of the shackles
Maradona’s troops look chilling
The next month could get Messi
La Selección true to their billing

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 If the Albicelestes are victors
El Diego has warned us all
To streak starkers around Buenos Aires
Bare feet caressing the ball

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 With the lusty tango heat
Lewd strip frolics of the gaffer
A genius toils hard
Grand Lionel the little nipper

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 On the greatest stage of all
Not so much a haughty pout
Devastating runs and nutmegs
Slippery as a twisting trout

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Brilliant Enyeama the star
Lagerback employed caution
This dour Swede is stifling
Super Eagles colour and emotion

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Heinze dived for the winner
Gnashed teeth glittered golden
Six sparkling stops from Enyeama
Truth is it could have been ten
