Ivory Coast 3-1 Ghana

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Not like Eboue to lose his head
I wish he’d stayed on his feet instead
of that rash challenged bound to rile
and seen out the game in fantastic style.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The Elephants prove their worth again,
Tienes’s free-kick, we’ll never see the same
repeated anywhere in any match,
impossible for a keeper to catch.
Kingston flew but in the end went flailing
the ball unstoppable, calmly sailing.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And now the quarter-finals await,
they’re in the hands of skill and fate.
