World Cup 2006 Day Two

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 England 1 Paraguay 0

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Above the pitch, a big square spider
Cast his web upon the ground.
Despite a very quick decider,
English fans despaired.
Like an ambushed fly they struggled,
Beckham buzzed and Ferdy frowned,
And though poor Sven and Macca juggled,
England were ensnared.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Sweden 0 Trinidad and Tobago 0

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Diddle diddle dumpling, Avery John,
From Longford to the Rubicon.
‘Twas the world stage you were on,
As the sun in splendour shone.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Two bad tackles, you were gone,
Tragic as a dying swan,
Trooping off so woebegone,
Diddle diddle dumpling, Avery John.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Argentina 2 Ivory Coast 1

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The Côte d’Ivoire at first seemed keener,
As they firmly grasped the nettle,
But though they seemed more fit and leaner,
They were not allowed to settle.
Land of silver – Argentina –
The Pampas boys were in fine fettle.
Like my father’s Ford Cortina,
Boy, they really showed their mettle.
