Four Goals For The Purists!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 As-Salaam-Alaikum wafted in stadium*
When Tunisia took on Saudi Arabia
The honours were shared in a tough hard fought game
With four goals for the purists to savour

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 “The Sons Of The Desert” could be a mirage
As the African champions found out
What with Ukraine getting rained on by Spain
It’s an interesting group there’s no doubt!



*Arabic for: Peace Be With You, usually used as a greeting between people who know each other.

Four terrific goals in this one!
