1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Spain 1 Italy 1

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 They told us the Italians were finished,
rocked by a domestic betting scandal.
Their chances of success had been diminished,
their only hope to light a holy candle.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 They said their camp was riddled with dissension
and injuries had filled them with dismay.
The fans displayed uncommon apprehension
and had, in record numbers, stayed away.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 They told us that they needed holy favours
and boy, just watch those busy Spanish swarm.
If that was a poor Italian side, God save us
from ever facing them when they’re on form.



Spain 1 Italy 1. The task gets even harder
