1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 England 0 – 0 Slovakia

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Half time:
and the web wobbles, as hits bombard ‘thesaurus’
with the word ‘frustration’ the ‘mot juste’

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 to the chagrin of the stoic fans
there’s little to cheer
but they hear
of the Red Dragon roasting the Russians

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Full time:
Frustration whips England full in the face
with a wet towel – drenched in Slovak sweat

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 a lot of huff
a lot of puff
but it is Wales who have blown the house down
and Albion’s sons must wait
to assess their fate
against as yet unknown foes

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Germany 1 – 0 Northern Ireland

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 There are new guests dining at the top table
And their manners are impeccable
Norn Iron will feast on such a tale, especially their keeper
Who will surely rise from Hamilton Academical !

Michael McGovern outstanding in goal.

Highlight results:

Wales 3 – 0 Russia
England 0 – 0 Slovakia
Germany 1 – 0 N. Ireland

Wales top the table.

England finish runners up, and so land in the tougher half of the draw.

Norn Iron advance as one of the best third placed finishers, by virtue of the fact that they only lost by one goal.
