World Cup 2006 Day One

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Germany 4 Costa Rica 2

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Traditionally, the opening game is pretty lousy fare,
The food on show is stodgy, specialities are rare.
But the international diners were all shouting out “Eureka!”
At the feast provided by the hosts, along with Costa Rica.
The Germans got a peach to leave the little minnows puffing,
But they were quite determined to avoid the dreaded stuffing.
Oh what a tasty dish to serve us at this lovely venue,
‘Twas hard to pick from all the appetisers on the menu.
A culinary treat, not the expexted bread and jam –
I was satisfied with Wanchope, but my partner fancied Lamm.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 They were quaffing cerveza in Quito
Beneath equatorial skies.
They had come to the games incognito
But they gave the poor Poles a surprise.
They managed to keep a clean sheet – oh,
The Poles had the sun in their eyes,
And they bit like an angry mosquito,
And buzzed all around them like flies.
