WC2018 Day 24 : 3rd/4th

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Third or fourth
Does it really matter?
Should it matter?
For there is no head-upon-a-platter
For failure

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Then what of the prize money?
I’m not being funny
But there is only 2 million FIFA shekels
In the difference

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 As to the game:
Southgate tinkered, Martinez went for the max;
Belgium had more attacks
And more goals
Than Albion’s tired souls

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 England’s Rose caught asleep at the wheel
And allowed Meunier to steal
And convert Chadli’s expert cross;
Les Diablo Rouges, continue to boss
The first 45.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Second half is better for England
But they let in a 2nd goal
A nightmare scene
When Hazard cuts across Phil Jones
Mirroring Trump’s faux pas with the Queen!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Off with his head!
