R.I.P. Diego

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Diego dribbled up to heaven
Where he met Saint Peter at the gate.
who looked at his credentials
And said “give me a minute mate.”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He then came back from God’s room
Saying, “I’m sorry but you’re banned
God said one time you borrowed
But did not return his hand.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 So you’ll do some time in purgatory
Where you’ll repent with other sinners
And you won’t be allowed in heaven
Until England are World Cup winners.”


Another great player taken too early. His brilliant second goal against England is often over shadowed by his ‘hand of God’ moment.
