France had more and more

What’s most shocking of all
Is VAR acting unruly

Jedinak the Aussie star
Deschamps rings the changes
Bailed out by Pogba

Messi’s sport kick is costly
Mascherano breaks the record
VAR misses a clear penalty

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Aguero scores his very first
So lethal on the swivel
Hallgrimsson’s organised side
Simply refused to shrivel

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 The lead lasts four minutes
Finnbogason with a simple tap
Argentina pressed for the winner
For the vikings it’s a wrap

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 Unlucky Peru rue killer touch
Peru 0-1 Denmark

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 Yussuf Poulsen did enough
To win this opening tie
Peru had 17 shots without scoring
To leave the Danes home and dry

15 Leave a comment on verse 15 0 It could have been different
Christian Cueva had the bullseye
VAR awarded a penalty kick
But he chose to aim for the sky

16 Leave a comment on verse 16 0 There was no past Schmeichel
Although Peru tethered Eriksen’s flow
Denmark take the three points
They were quite lucky to do so

Croatia 2-0 Nigeria

20 Leave a comment on verse 20 0 Etebo’s own goal
And a Modric penalty
Gives Croatia a winning start
Thanks to Nigeria in Group D

21 Leave a comment on verse 21 0 It was a dire game in Kaliningrad
With a wrestling bout on the pitch
Ref Sandro Ricci didn’t hesitate
When Troost-Ekong grapples Mandzukic

22 Leave a comment on verse 22 0 There was no danger
Of Modric and his penalty
Super Eagles were woeful
With Etebo off to Stoke City
