1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Costa Rica thwart
Coutinho leads the charge
Late, Late Show

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 ~ # ~

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Politics abound
Kosovo flag on his boots
Shaqiri offends

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 ~ # ~

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Pre-match:

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Messi and complicated
all our lives can get like that
but right now
the Argentinians are reliant
on the achievements of others:
will it be the “Thunderclap” of Iceland
that sends the “Albiceleste” out to the wastelands
or will the “Super Eagles” fly to their rescue?

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Post-match:

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 The Condors of the Andes
Have a chance to soar
All thanks to the Super Eagles
Taking to the wing
