World Cup day 16

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Boy wonder Mbappe sends Argentina home
France 4-3 Argentina

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 With the magician it’s so simple
You look up, locate his place
Don’t go on a mazy dribble
You play it to Messi in space

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Griezmann with a penalty
Rojo with a clumsy foul
Angel lashes home a stunner
Behold Maradona’s howl

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Messi shoots on goal
Deflection by Mercado
There’s unrest in Les Bleus ranks
What’s Didier Deschamps’ throw?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 With the focus on Messi
Pavard’s missile allez, allez!
Mbappe the first teen to score
In a World Cup since Pele

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Aguero with a late consolation
El Jefe Mascherano retires snappy
Mbappe the boy wonder
Will live long in memory

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 La Celeste concede but go through
Uruguay 2-1 Portugal

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Uruguay hadn’t been breached
For six full games in a row
Not that huge a surprise
Their stoppers are from Atletico

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 One nil to La Celeste
Smacking off Cavani’s face
Pepe is free to head home
Edinson curls a beauty with pace

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 El Matador retires hurt
Quaresma joins the front crew
Godin and Gimenez close shop
Oscar Tabarez’s men go through
