Euro 2008 – Day 3 – Group of death

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Absent Patrick and Thierry, with the old guard were missing
The dour Zurich stalemate left many reminiscing

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Congratulations to loyal Coupet, at last a major
Nothing more deserved for the canny old stager

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Whilst warhorse Thuram’s fifteenth broke another record
Abdul Salam’s bleak streak just couldn’t be ignored

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Les Bleus future is assured with starlets Toulalan and Nasri
For Golden boy Benzema a mention and the ferocious Ribery

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Later on in the battle of Berne it was a totally different kettle
As Total football and Caternaccio pounded the mettle

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Even green fingered Charlie Dimmock took a break from her sprout
Donned number 18, changed her name to Dirk Kuyt

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Rickety old boys Italy with the oldest starting eleven
Could Oranje youthful exuberance ever be forgiven?

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 For each of the flying Dutchmen were in killer mode
Energy compressed and ready to explode

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Thunderous they detonated like live dynamite
Herculian Wesley gave the Azurri a mighty fright

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Though Osso Donadoni and his champions will be lurching
It can still be put right with deep blue soul searching

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Number 7
