I’m shaking.
Is this nerves ahead of Sundays game against Ecuador in the last 16?
Or is it writers block coming on?
Or just that I’m in absolute awe of the brilliant Peter Goulding?!?!

With regards to the matches today :

Ronaldo equalled Gerd Muller’s all time World Cup scoring record, when he scored a brace against Japan…
Magnificent feat!

But outdone by a referee!

Our own Graham Poll managed to book the (Aussie born!) Croatian Simunic three times before he showed him the red card.
It didn’t help matters when the (Croatian born!) Socceroo Mark Viduka snogged Graham Poll at the final whistle!!!!

There has to be a decent poem in all that somewhere!
