With a Super Mario double-blast
The Azzurri so assured
The shellshocked Germans left aghast!

Notes

Wednesday 27th June 2012

Spain 0 – 0 Portugal

Spain win on penalties
Ronaldo elected to go last, but never even got to take his penalty, as Portugal lose 4-2 in the shootout.
Watched with old friends Neil & Ali, somewhere in St James’s Park.
Ali announces wedding bells!

Thursday 28th June 2012

Ballotelli scored twice
