Thank You Gareth Southgate

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We thought it was coming home
to where football all began,
our young Lions battled hard
every player to a man.
But it wasn’t meant to be
they just ran out of steam,
as on the night Croatia
were the better team.
Yet they did the country proud
as the nation became one,
we saw that they gave their all
in the heat of a Russian sun.
Yes we were left deflated
that it wasn’t our night,
but with this young side
the future does look bright.
So hold those heads up high
and dry all those tears,
and to Gareth Southgate
all I want to say is CHEERS !
