Nothing much happened at all.
Someone contested the ball.
Somebody shot from a distance.
Somebody else showed resistance.
The ball was kicked out for a throw.
The ball was thrown back rather slow.
The teams both trooped off at half time.
The weather was really sublime.
Second half, more of the same.
Nothing occurred in the game.
Paraguay brought on two subs
Who played for two different clubs.
New Zealand then brought on a sub.
He should have gone off to the pub.
Someone strayed slightly offside.
Somebody played the ball wide.
And then the match came to a stop.
Paraguay finished on top.
New Zealand at least finished third,
Despite the fact nothing occurred.
A dazzling match in the World Cup
That failed to wake anyone up.

It sounds so obtuse. Oh,
You’re finally put out to pasture.
With your bulldog expression
And tigerish obsession,
It was sad to see youngsters outlast ya.

Yes, the end of an era
Has got one step nearer,
From the start, they looked in the soup.
Still, no-one expected,
These men, so respected,
To end at the foot of their group.

Then Okazaki’s football boot connected!
A most emphatic three-one win effected,
A scoreline that was largely unexpected –
Three points were most efficiently collected.
