Euro 2012 Day 6 Match 1

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Portugal 3 Denmark 2

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The Portuguese abound in clever passes,
slick one-twos the order of the day
but sadly they don’t know what real class is.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Despite a most imperious display,
they spent the whole match diving and complaining
and driving all the neutral fans away.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I wonder do they practice it in training?
the frantic roll whenever contact’s made,
the moaning, faking, finger-pointing, feigning?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 It’s such a shame their matches can’t be played
without the almost constant remonstrating
that seems to be their standard stock in trade.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 I’m sure that the officials find it grating
to be assailed by this assault of jaw
and suffer that long barrage of berating.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 It’s possible they’ll win the Euros, for
the Portuguese abound in clever passes.
But champions are made of so much more –
till then, they’ll never know what real class is.
