Shevchenko at the double

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Ukraine 2-1 Sweden

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 They said he was over the hill
Time for an affectionate farewell
Dispelled much whilst going for the kill
In a terrific seven minute spell

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Another icon sets events in motion
Ibrahimovich steering Kallstrom’s cross
Dream start in Kyiv lacked devotion
Poachers brace adds sheen to the gloss

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 So the choice of nostalgia prevails
Ukraine shares a communal whoopee
Laid to rest all the old wives tales
Made in Kyiv, Milan, Chelsea
