Euro 2012 Day 5 Match 2

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

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Under the circumstances,
when the host nation of a tournament,
trailing a former occupying force
in a crunch game watched by millions,
scores a wonderful equaliser
to keep alive spirit,
hope and dreams of qualification,
it is perhaps understandable
and entirely forgivable,
that the television director
chooses to replay the moment
five hundred and seventy three times.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And, under the circumstances,
It is perhaps only the cost
that will prevent
thousands of Polish kids from
getting Blaszczykowski’s name
printed on their shirts.
