World Cup

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Rossi on fire with the ball at his feet
Fontaine the finest his thirteen not beat
Pele for Carlos he set up the trap
Toto Schillaci but not David Platt
Milla a thriller dancing alone
Maradona bewitching
With his hand then his toes
Marco Tardelli
The coolest of names
Geoff Hurst with his hattrick
Rose Reilly of Scotland
World Cup winning fame
Archie Gemmill pure magic
Raced past the Dutch
‘Der Bomber’ Gerd Muller
With gunslinger’s touch.
