Oh No ! It’s Rivelino !

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I watched this Rivelino bloke
Take a direct free kick
Any poor old keeper
Must have been scared sick
He took a run up that was long
Then lashed in to the ball
Up in the air around the ground
It swerved and spun and all
It visited trainers dug out
Where subs all kissed it’s lace
St Peter’s Square?
Yeah it went there!
As the pope had just said grace
It spun over to The Maracana
From Copacabana Beach
Then gently nestled in the net
Just out of keeper’s reach!



The ultimate free kick specialist this guy. You, the viewer and the poor old opposition keeper never knew where they were going to go! I’m not quite sure that he (Rivelino) did either!
