Goodbye Brazil–haiku

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Brilliant World Cup
sad that it has now ended
football withdrawals.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Germany winners
a well organised machine
worthy champions.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 What about the hosts ?
humiliated at home
let in seven goals.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Sadly the divers
they cheated the referees
chief culprit Robben.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Then there was Suarez
who brought his bite to Brazil
he’s chewy Luis.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 How about England ?
came with low expectations
and that’s what we got.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 What an invention
the magical free kick spray
get behind white line.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 United States
were such a joy to behold
they never give up.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Goalkeeping displays
of the highest quality
class between the sticks.

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Messi top player ?
sorry but they picked it wrong
Lionel not the best.

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 So goodbye Brazil
thanks for a wonderful time
what a football treat !

So it’s come to an end a month long football carnival.
But it will go down as one of the best ever,as it had everything.
Goals,great games,dives,bites,characters,magic spray,dodgy refs,pitch intruders,Sepp Blatter,(boo) and of course great performances from the minnow nations. I’m missing it already !
