2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Was it to be just one of those things?
A ball swept in, byTorsten Frings
We watch, as the ball swings
Untouched, even as van der Saar flings –
Holland flounder, the likely result, stings
The Teuton titans, look probable Kaiser Kings

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But wait, don’t discount Van the Man
With equine features, no fancy Dan
Nicking a goal, as only he can
He raises the spirits, of every Dutch fan
So now they can relax, catch a tan
While the coaches resuscitate, the game plan
