12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 When a country, full of hope, projects
Its dreams upon the national football side,
It often stirs up negative effects.

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 In penalties, the player oft elects
To blast it – sometimes high and sometimes wide –
Unlike the man that carefully directs.

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 Imagine, then, the pressure that collects
And builds and grows, fomenting deep inside
When one entire continent expects.

15 Leave a comment on verse 15 0 In penalties, that pressure, one suspects,
Was strong enough to staunch the Ghana tide,
Instilling fear in frozen intellects.

16 Leave a comment on verse 16 0 Shaping destiny, great architects
Show strength that otherwise might be defied
Whene’er the fear of failure interjects.

17 Leave a comment on verse 17 0 Later, when the analyst dissects
The contributing factors thus applied,
He’ll cite the weight a continent projects
When everyone in Africa expects.
