The Retirement of Jason McAteer

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Jason, thank you very much
For those two goals against the Dutch.
That’s what you’ll be remembered for,
Although you gave us so much more.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Especially the one that bounced
Just fractionally before you pounced.
You slammed the ball past van der Saar,
And underneath the orange bar.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And don’t forget that famous strike,
Extolled by friend and foe alike,
That won the World Cup for our team.
So sad that it was just a dream.
