1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Read somewhere Van Gaal thinks it’s absurd
to make these paid footballers play for third.
The winning side will take home two more million
(two hundred fifty years, if you’re Brazilian).
Algeria: get Big Phil to agree
to pool the difference for a charity,
Help him build back our Game’s reputation;
help us understand real indignation.



If my sources are accurate: USD$20 million for third; USD$18 million for fourth; and average Brazilian income $8,147 p.a.. Well done Algeria. Mr. Messi: Best of luck, but you KNOW that if you win, Pope Francis is coming for your side’s extra $10 million to give to the poor. I love this Game.
