WC 2006 : Jason and the ergo norths

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Scotland plays in Scotland
But doesn’t represent ’em
His hopes and dreams are rising
Wouldn’t want to dent ’em

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 For he’ll be at the World Cup
Playing for Trinidad & Tobago
A very welcome distraction
From auntie’s lumbago!

Notes

Jason Scotland, plays for St Johnstone & internationally for Trinidad & Tobago

I wanted to be the first in with the most obvious of rhyme crimes!

Congratulations to Trinidad & Tobago, who have qualified for their first ever World Cup.

Some of the UK based players that we might see turning out for them :

Trinidad and Tobago
Chris Birchall (Port Vale), Russel Latapy (Falkirk), Jason Scotland (St Johnstone), Stern John (Derby), Kenwyne Jones (Southampton), Kelvin Jack (Dundee), Marvin Andrews (Rangers), Dennis Lawrence (Wrexham), Carlos Edwards (Luton), Shaka Hislop (West Ham), Brent Sancho (Gillingham)

With a population of just over one million, Trinidad will be the least populated country taking part in Germany and is only the fourth Caribbean side to reach the finals following Cuba in 1938, Haiti in 1974 and Jamaica in 1998.
