WC2014 Day 11 Algeria 4 South Korea 2

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 After Belgium – Russia, eyes were bleary.
The prospect of Algeria dismayed.
This syndrome tends to make one football weary
after thirty World Cup games are played.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 This didn’t look to be a nerve-end scraper.
Neither team had shown a lot of class.
It didn’t look that good a game on paper
but thankfully they played the match on grass.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 It didn’t seem a game for the attacker.
The probing ball looked set to be returned.
But actually it proved to be a cracker –
apologies to everyone concerned.
