Germany 0-2 South Korea
Mexico 0-3 Sweden
Serbia 0-2 Brazil
Switzerland 2-2 Costa Rica
Germany came into the tournament on the back of a number of strange defeats in friendly matches.
But everyone just shrugged and said, “but it’s Germany, they’ll always be a threat”.
the Germans themselves even have a term for it ….
” Turniermenschaft ”
Important Editorial Note: Raus = Out (as in Germany Out)
Raus Raus Raus = Out Out Out… as in “Zigger Zagger-Zigger Zagger.. Out Out Out”

I really like this poem. So many great phrases: “striped and manicured”, “a crowd of heads go drooping”, “and maintain home advantage”, “when Mum blew for dinner”. Much appreciated! Thank you.

Such great words Ray. So evocative of that time of innocence Kepp on mate. More please. It will be under the Nostaglia section too.

As a child I drew crowds; row upon row,
fifteen thousand little circles for the fans,
such a great line…bewcause we all did…and golaposts nets and floodlights too…
