But now their stature has attained Olympian proportions.

Yet still, I’m guilty with the rest and most apollo-getic.

Defensively quite Spartan, as the French found to their pain.
Their Herculean efforts have been tangible and real,
And teams have found their workrate is a large Achilles heel.

Though many soccer wives regard their brand of Soccer a tease.

And pundits who dismiss them now are somewhat Hippocratic.

His Zeus of balls has been an education on its own.
They’ll all go Homer hero, reputations still intact,
And Herr Rehhagel, unlike Carthage, will not end up sacked.
