Shay will have put it down to larking
With a modicum of fuss
Whilst the Irish backs had trouble parking
The team’s defensive bus.
“An early goal is crucial”
The know all football sceptics say
No it ain’t but as per usual
We’re set on doing it the hard way.
Trap will have to sort the wingers out
McGeadys gotta go
While the Mackem’s hare deserves a shout
Of performing at the show.
Italy? Not a problem?
Spain are out on their feet
Or am I’m searching for consolation,
Trying to be positive in defeat?
