4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 There’s a mystery in Ekaterinburg
Where missing seats are aplenty
Suarez looked well sluggish
But Cavani is equally lively

Evades the rookie El Shenawy
Giménez heads in for Uruguay
A first opening win since 1970

Egypt now look to get on track
Godin was simply flawless
But Salah will soon be back

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 So a second African team
Succumbed to a late strike
Iran win with seconds to spare
To stick two fingers up at Nike

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 It may have been to Queiroz
“The hardest group of the World Cup”
With only a second ever win
His team are surely on the up

No boots, no sweat
Aziz Bouhaddouz defending a set piece
Heading into his own net

The whole of Portugal sups
He’s now the fourth ever player
To score at four World Cups

17 Leave a comment on verse 17 0 Penalty gold in the first half
Who else but Ronaldo
Two from the bullish Costa
A swerving screamer from Nacho

18 Leave a comment on verse 18 0 I called it the moment the ref blew
Ronnie’s 51st career hat trick
This thrilling Group B opener
Squared with a vicious late free kick
