Tears before kickoff- Brazil 2-1 North Korea

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Japanese born Jong Tae-se
‘North Korea’s ‘Rooney’
Towering head and shoulders
His teammates look puny

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Kawasaki Frontale’s hitman
Tears during the national anthem
True patriot caught on camera
Seen from Ellis Park to Arnhem

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Dunga’s team of battlers
Fashioned in his own image
Fended off North Korean muscle
Holding their own in the Scrimmage

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Maicon’s Curling piledriver
With added steel and graft
Robinho’s all round wizardry
Elano finishing off his handicraft

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Samba beat outfought the Vuvuzela
Group of death harbours a shark
Historic consolation by Nam
Most vital since Ayresome Park

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Number 7
