Euro 2008 Day Four i

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Spain 4 Russia 1

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Raise the flag and hoist the lanyards!
Football’s saved, thanks to the Spaniards!
At last – a team that’s not afraid of
Demonstrating what they’re made of.
Full of flicks and feints and movement,
Thankfully a vast improvement
On the great defensive gameplan
Of so many with the same plan.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 It’s a shame defensive lapses
May well scupper what perhaps is
Spain’s best football team for ages
To contest the latter stages.
