Red autumn, appeared in France,
The football field, stained with sweat;
Lille Metropole fought hard in the Champions league.
The cheer of their fans never ceased,
Lifting the team above their own soil;
Lille Metropole never dreamed to surrender.
Confidence and composure,
Skillfulness and experience,
Lille Metropole defeated Manchester United.
The referee blew his whistle, loudly,
Joy began to bloom in the noisy stadium;
Lille Metropole began their celebration.
Memories lingered in the cold air,
Football never died, here in the city,
Lille Metropole, now, famous and popular in Europe.
