1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Hi from Loftus Versfeld
Attacking La Albirroja
Jubilant Japanese in combat
Eccentric skill of a forger

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Reaching the last eight
A first for each great nation
Face off with Spain or Portugal
Or end of the African vacation

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Japan boss Takeshi Okada
Gambled on a last four place
In the end it finished goalless
Gaffer sweating on lose face

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Gerardo Martin’s tight ship
Showed Samurai Blue the door
Typical Latin colour and flair
Conceding only one in four

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Penalties to settle the stalemate
For grabs a place in history
Komano brushing the post
Paraguay joy, Japan agony

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 29.06.10

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Number 7
