Pre France v Belgium.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Two current generations
Of European football sensations
Will have us drooling in St Petersburg – I’m hoping – today
So…who’ll come out on top
Of this immensely talented, formidable crop
Aspiring to hold aloft, one Jules Rimet?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Les Blues and the lightning quick Mbappe?
Diables Rouges De Bruyne dictating the play?
In a game almost certain to captivate us all?
Were I to Hazard a guess
In such an evenly matched contest
I’d have to say…tis a close one to call.



This first semi should be a blinding, albeit tight game to my way of thinking? Belgium were my out-side tip to do well – if they decided to turn up that is? – before the off.

On the other hand I feel France are not quite firing yet – despite Kyllian Mbappe – so maybe this game will be one too soon for Deschamp and his team? But hey…what do I know?

Go well, be lucky and keep smiling.
