WC2014 Day 19 France 2 Nigeria 0

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The first half and the fancied French looked tense.
The Super Eagles swarmed through their defence
like ants.
Not good for France.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Red card ref? Matuidi rakes a shin.
But no, the referee must have been in
a trance.
Let off for France.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Giroud comes off. He has not had the breaks.
Corner ball. Free header, Pogba takes
his chance.
One nil to France.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 All hope for the Nigerians has fled.
The tide has turned, their back four now is led
a dance.
Now it’s all France.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Where once les Bleus had found there’s no way past,
there now exists a limitless and vast
expanse
of space for France.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 A cruel own goal from Yobo and they know
there’s no way back and also there is no
romance
when playing France.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 No extra time to follow this hot day
The French have won the tie and therefore they
advance.
Hooray for France.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Nigeria go home now, far from merry.
Defeat was not down to lack of necessary
finance
when they played France.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 (We can’t forget the handball – we still grieve.
And that is why we earnestly believe
it’s pants –
this win for France)
