One nil rout: Slovenia 0 -1 England

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We demanded it to be right
Years before it had come right
It had to come right
Now it has come all right

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Don Capello mused defiantly
Shades of eighty six and ninety
Resplendent in Royal Liverpool Red
For the flag each man bled

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Altogether new attacking zest
England at their awesome best
Dazzling Milner a pinpoint centre
Poised Defoe with the clincher

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Gerrard brilliant in Red rouge
Lions pressure signalled a Deluge
Upson’s tackle from Carra’s manual
Hamdanovic saves not of the usual

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Joe Cole made fans sing merry
pleasant for player manager Terry
Slovenian sorrow in Port Elizabeth
As USA beat the Foxes at the death

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 23.06.10

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Number 7
