WC2014 : Day 3

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 England 1 – 2 Italy

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 By esteemed opinion
there is but one dominion
in the parlance of Pirlo –

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 as fearless
as England atypically were
we could but only purr –
at Pirlo

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 unfortunately
the winner came from Super Mario
the consequence of which:
we may not tarry – oh!



Other scores on the day:
Colombia 3 – 0 Greece
Uruguay 1 – 3 Costa Rica

An unfortunate incident occurred when England’s Daniel Sturridge equalised:
In the celebrations, England physio Gary Lewin fell and fractured is ankle.
He has now travelled home and will miss the World Cup.

Re Pirlo: a team-mate once said of him:

“giving him the ball is like putting it into a safe!”
