René “El Escorpio” Higuita

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Outrageous, erratic, eccentric
Robbed in Naples by the indomitable Milla
Waltzed with Rincon, Escobar, Asprilla
Carlos Valderrama

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Iconic showman from Medellin
Attacked Redknapp’s Wembley howitzer
Acrobatic backflip leap 
From South America’s best sweeper

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Bamboozled one Gary Lineker
Jose El Loco Higuita Zapata
King of the Scorpion kick
Then retired and ran for Mayor

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Well before the back pass rule 
Vivid skill from the monstrous black perm
Maturana’s eleventh player
Quite simply years ahead of his term

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Number 7
