Viva Mexico.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Pele weren’t the only Brazilian
Got stuck in a traffic jam last night
As Big Phil’s army, supported by millions,
Advance toward World domination
Got held up by a Mexican red light.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 As Ochoa the Mexican keeper
Whilst unusually small for said role
Stood defiantly tall using all of his physique
To inspire a unified team to their goal.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 In Marquez they’d an outstanding player
Now a sweeper as his legs start to go
Who reminded me of Italy’s Gaetano Scirea
Or the elegant Dutchman Ruud Krol.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Even a dive by Marcelo
Deserving an Oscar (sic) or a yellow
Couldn’t deter from a breath-taking game
As the Mexican sharpshooters
Whose sights to be truth
Require tweaking before next they take aim.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 So sheer Mexican resilience halts the Brazilians
Whilst the boos from home fans clearly showed,
They demand their Brazilliance over come mere resilience
and were letting Neymar and company know.



The best game I’ve seen so far. Blinding stuff.

O I Do Hope We Win The World Cup.

Stay well, be lucky and keep smiling.
