Euro 2008 – Austria 1-1 Poland: The fat lady sings

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Three clear runs on goal bore no Vienna fruit
Austria the land of culture, such matchplay deserved the boot

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 At a club the squad would’ve been up for wholesale transfer
Lamenting nation screams, “what price crooning Toni Polster?”

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Nail by Guerreiro hammered past the Macho man
Such a lacklustre display surely deserves a prolonged FIFA ban

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Ivica’s record goal still leaves Austria footloose and fancy free
No takers though for the worst (co) hosts in championship history

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Number 7
