The stereotypes have been shot down in flames,
The clichés have all been discarded.

They leave gaping holes at the back.
The players are not robots, ice-cool and proficient,
And marking is often quite slack.

Effulsive in back heels and flicks.

With a dearth of those showboating flicks.

In fact they’ve been dull and defensive,
And the Portuguese lads haven’t shown too much guile,
Being nervous and quite apprehensive.
