Euro 2008 Day Three ii

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Netherlands 3 Italy 0

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 My dad explained it carefully
When I was five years old.
It wasn’t very difficult
The way that I was told.
One player nearer to the goal
Just as the ball is played
And you are very def-in-ite-ly
Offside, I’m afraid.
Of course, there’s technicalities
Like – was the ball played back?
Was the ball deflected in
The course of the attack?
But mostly situations are
Quite simple to decide –
So someone tell me how van Nis-
-Tlerooy was deemed onside?
