Ireland 0 Brazil 1

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Their goalie barely sees the ball,
The team’s so forward-driven,
But in their hist’ry few recall
A keeper like Shay Given.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Their centre backs can read the ball
And spot the midfield runner,
But few would have the wherewithal
Of someone like the Dunner.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 They’ve players who can spread the ball
Like all great players can,
But frankly you may keep them all
For we have Kev Kilbane.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Their love of getting on the ball
Oft borders on the greedy,
But seldom do these players enthral
Like Miller or McGeady.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Their forwards pounce on each loose ball
With joie de vivre latino,
But how Brazil would love to call
On Kevin Doyle and Keano.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But where Brazil are on the ball
Is in their whole approach
That teams improve if you install
An international coach.
