Euro 2012 Day 1 Match 1

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Poland 1 Greece 1

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Robert Lewandowski had found the Greek netting.
The hosts were on fire and quite on a roll,
confirming the nous of the pre-match betting.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A central defender red-carded for breathing,
the second fell injured and doubled the toll –
small wonder the obdurate Greeks were seething.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Half-time came, there was just one team in it
and what a nice day for a carefree stroll!
(and had been from the very first minute)

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Then three large letters appeared in the fray
(an occurrence that many folk present found droll)
– an A, an S and a capital K.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The A was as large as an emperor’s hallway.
The S was the size of an overgrown troll.
The K was immense (’bout the same size as Galway)

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Throw in the towel? The Greeks would forbid it,
though it didn’t appear they could pull back a goal.
It was a big ask, but the battling Greeks did it.
