1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Italy 0 England 0 (Italy win 4-2 on penalties)

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Sometimes a feat of courage leaves you thunderstruck
but Pirlo’s spot-kick got what it deserved.
Would you or I have left that penno under-struck?
Sometimes a feat of courage leaves you thunderstruck.
The notion that it could have been a blunder struck
the millions watching; left us quite unnerved.
Sometimes a feat of courage leaves you thunderstruck
but Pirlo’s spot-kick got what it deserved.

Notes

Doubt I’d have the nerve to take a spot kick in the first place, never mind dink it like Pirlo. What if it went wrong and Hart had not moved?
