World Cup day 5

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Swedes start life without Zlatan
Sweden 1-0 South Korea

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Ibrahimovic had said earlier
“The World Cup without me,
is not worth watching”
To some that’s a desperate plea

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But the Blågult kept their nerve
With Son’s pace on the counter spin
It’s been a long sixty years
Since an opening day win

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 With no Zlatan in charge
Granqvist with the penalty
It’s now about Toivonen and Berg
Teamwork and unity

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Belgique rule the roost
Belgium 3-0 Panama

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Belgium stroll literally
Not to mention metaphorically
Mertens with a superb volley
To liven things up in Sochi

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 They took a while to get going
But Lukaku headed number two
De Bruyne supplies the magic
As his Red Devil’s plot to go through

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Too strong for the newbies
Hard feeding the drip
Martinez tops Group Three
Lukaku with a deft chip

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Captain Kane to the rescue
Tunisia 1-1 England

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 It was a dream start for England
First blood from Captain Kane
Kyle Walker turned street brawler
Sassi exacting penalty pain

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 We saw an attack of the midges
Attacking without rhyme or reason
Gifts from the Volga River
After all it is breeding season

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 You can’t keep a class striker down
Three Lions with miss after miss
Harry Kane seals it at the death
Volgograd to see the back of this
