WC2014 Day 9 Costa Rica 1 Italy 0

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The Whipping Boys was how they had been labelled –
to think they would progress would be quite wrong.
The motion to dismiss them had been tabled.
They just weren’t going to be here for too long.
The bigger boys would more than likely maul them,
said experts on the global football pages.
Yes, Whipping Boys, the analysts did call them
but they whipped themselves into the final stages.



The lads done good. (and the English queen is probably grateful)
