Euro 2008: Day 13 – Portugal 2-3 Germany

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 In the absence of Field Sergeant Low
Pre match hype focussed on Ronaldo
Defeat and he’d announce on the morrow
Whether a Manc he’d stay or go

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Prey at mercy’s feet Lukas arched his bow
Brazen Schwein stroke with the precision of Zorro
Miroslav broke his duck with one of his brow
Red comeback in the form of El Nuno

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Crimson attacking intent began to grow
Orchestrated by the wily general Deco
But the Germans just refused to lay down low
Commander Ballack countered with a deadly body blow

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Morale and flair eased as the play became slow
Lack of a finisher left no dice to throw
Only resistance from the industrious Moutinho
Before Nani introduced to the playing plateau

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 As time ticked Fergie’s babe curled in an arrow
Step up Postiga and become a national hero
Time though snuffed the flame to a mere glow
Big Phil’s tenure ending in sorrow

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 With the return of Field Sergeant Low
Post match hype focussed on Ronaldo
Defeat confirmed he’d announce on the morrow
Whether a Manc he’d stay or go

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Number 7
