Neymar sets the tone
sweat and toil over sheer skill
back breaking effort
~ # ~
The sun has got its hat on
Hip hip hip hooray!
Beautiful beaches beckon
But the World Cup is in play!
And the semi-final sunbeds
Have been booked by the German towels
Joined in the semis by hosts Brazil
From a game marred by fouls
And then today, all eyes on
But Les Diables Rouges disappoint
They needed more brio
Followed by the (surely) easy game
The Dutch versus the Costa Ricans
But with their prodigious workrate
The case for walkover weakens
Then we have the big, big decision –
Van Gaal decides its Krul to be kind
Substituting his keeper
Now a bigger hero would be hard to find!
