Memo to England

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Can someone tell Nathaniel how to throw-in?
Or Jordan H. which goal’s the other team’s?
And Danny, what it’s like to get a toe in?
He only had a hat-trick in his dreams.
Can Rooney always play the same pace he did
right after Jordan scored on his own net?
They didn’t start to play ’til they’d conceded,
though no opponent’s put one past Joe yet.
Can someone tell the English fans “You’re spoiled,
Stop griping at the quality of play.”
Even if the gears are not so well-oiled yet,
you’re top with twelve points in your group today.”
