At last the first match
Of 2006 world Cup,
England dominates from the start.
And the balls in the back of Paraguay’s net.
England supporters erupt, in the ground,
Every pub, club and home in England.
It’s an own goal,
But no England supporter cares,
It’s only four minutes,
And they look for more.
Second half England players wilt,
Under the blazing sun,
Fans hope, England can hold on,
Forty five minutes,
Seem like eternity.
Final whistle ends agony,
Jubilant supporters embrace,
England have three points.
