World Cup day 20

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Les Bleus reach the semis
Uruguay 0-2 France

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Not since 2006
Have France made the last four
Oscar Tabarez’s men
Were today shown the door

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We contrast the fates of the keepers
After Raphael Varane’s header
Sheer brilliance from Lloris
A howler from Muslera

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Edinson Cavani a huge miss
Failing to make the bench
Griezmann let fly, Muslera flapped
It’s a semi for the French

Belgium 2-1 Brazil

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Never in history
Where the global teams gather
Has a World Cup winning team
Been led by a foreign gaffer

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Fernandinho and De Bruyne
Diving Neymar in an aerodrome
Augusto with a consolation
Sorry Brazil go home

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 There’s still much to do
Kompany reigns the celebration
It’s now time to rise
For this golden generation
