WC2014 Day 15 Ghana 1 Portugal 2

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The build up went well, Cristiano.
Played well for a spell, Cristiano.
The public was hooked
and it never once looked
like you might self-destruct, Cristiano.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A man in your prime, Cristiano.
This was your time, Cristiano.
How cruel were the blows
of your injury woes.
But that’s how it goes, Cristiano.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Goodbye to the dream, Cristiano.
Fly home with your team, Cristiano.
From the start it went wrong,
you were not on song.
Four years is too long, Cristiano.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Messi’s climbed higher, Cristiano.
Neymar’s on fire, Cristiano.
But what can you do
when your luck won’t run true?
It should have been you, Cristiano.
