World Cup 2010 – Day 26

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Netherlands 3 Uruguay 2 (Semi Final)

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 You wouldn’t really say it was a classic.
At times, the going got a little rough.
Tackles often bordered on Jurassic
But in the end, the Dutch just had enough.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Van Bommel left his mark on all who crossed him,
Robben tackled like a powder puff.
Kuyt plundered when the hapless fullback lost him –
One reason why the Dutch just had enough.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Uruguay were dogged and persistent,
Van Persie offered little more than fluff.
Disappointed with the ref’s assistant,
The Dutch, however, seemed to have enough.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Van Bronckhorst’s goal was really one to savour,
Forlan’s strike was somewhat off the cuff.
Sneijder’s curler had an offside flavour,
But overall, the Dutch just had enough.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Robben’s header simply was the icing,
Though many thought the scoreline slightly rough.
A late goal made the ending quite enticing
But, all in all, the Dutch just had enough.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The analysts did not indulge in fudging,
Praise was damning and a little gruff.
Their chances in the final were begrudging,
But who’s to say the Dutch won’t have enough?
