Twenty Two Perfect Penalties

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Twenty two penalties hit the net
The kind of shoot out you don’t forget
A 100% record from the spot,
Not one saved? I kid you not!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 No woodwork hit
No half saved shots
Each one perfect?
I kid you not?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Did the keepers score?
Yes they did
Was anyone scared?
They kept it hid

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Were all there nervous?
Too damn right
Was it exciting?
What a night!


Ivory Coast V Cameroon. In The African Cup Of Nations last night all twenty two pens were perfection. Even the goalkeepers!

Then Samuel E’Oto started the 2nd round of the sudden death shoot out and missed the first one!

Didier Drogba scores the next one and the Ivory Coast are through, awesome viewing! Tis a shame the match itself was’nt half as exciting?

No one admits to liking shoot outs but they sure make for exciting viewing!
