Euro 2016 XII: C’est fini!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Football educates –
Yes, this dire critic
Learns diacritics
For where else would I really pay any attention
At the very mention
Of Ümlaut, Breve, Grave, Tilde, Virgulilla,
Cedilla, Caron, Circumflex
And yet instantly know
That they are not bench-warmers!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Best team on the pitch for me?
Symphyta – no, not the band
but Moth-land
for they buzzed around all over
with no let up
relentlessly making a nuisance of themselves
and even had Ronaldo in tears

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 they had our screens, if not our hearts, all a flutter
as the main entertainment
was nowt but a stutter

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 until
a Swansea reject, Eder
set it up for Ronaldo
to hold the cup high in midair
