1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 First bore draw at Russia 2018
Denmark 0-0 France

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Only a matter of time
Some team would refuse the bait
With a bore draw at the Luzhniki
We’re treated to a stalemate

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Where would a goal come from?
Neither team needed the win
They passed it back and sideways
Who could blame the fans din

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 It was eleven behind the ball
Red frustrating the blue
Anything else a bonus
As both nations go through

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Socceroos humbled by Los Incas
Australia 0-2 Peru

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Peru’s first win in forty years
Starts with a volley from Carrillo
Saved from a sure fire ban
It’s that man Guerrero

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 His World Cup dream
Saved by Jedinak’s letter
Peru finish on a high
Aussies leave Russia with a whimper

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 With Peru’s skipper facing a ban
The Group C captains did their bit
And when the chance came
Guerrero made the most of it

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Rojo again as Argentina arrive
Nigeria 1-2 Argentina

Wonder goal from Messi
Mascherano wrestles Balogun
Moses rolls home the penalty

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Following on from Port Alegre
Lightning does strike twice
Mascherano leading the charge
With a last throw of the dice

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 It took the centre half to settle
Begging went chance after chance
A stupendous volley by Rojo
It’s the Argentines who advance

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 Brave Icemen fall short
Iceland 1-2 Croatia

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 Badelj puts Croatia in the lead
Dejan Lovren becomes a sinner
Sigurdsson levels from the spot
Perisic with a last minute winner

15 Leave a comment on verse 15 0 It’s heartbreak in Rostov
No more thunderclap hands
Iceland and their fans crestfallen
There are tears in the stands

16 Leave a comment on verse 16 0 Group D ends up like this
After a breathless nights play
Croatia face Denmark
France meet Argentina on Sunday
