The snakeman – Rob Rensenbrink

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Outsider from Anderlecht
Scored in all of three Euro finals
Underrated with all due respect

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Inch away from World Cup hero
1000th world cup goal against the Scots
Golden boot snatched, utter zero

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 No matter a European pedigree
Stood ‘Royal Pair’ of Cruyff and Keizer
Positional change was the key

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Stunning skill to play on the wing
Warned keepers which corner he’d shoot
High jinks from the spot kick king

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Many tried hard to banish the ghost
It could have been so different
Had Fillol not deflected onto the post

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Number 7

Notes

Mario Kempes: “If Rensenbrink hadn’t hit the post in the Final, he would have been the top scorer”
