World Cup day 7

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Ronaldo knocks out Morocco
Portugal 1-0 Morocco
 
Ronaldo again with the magic
This time an in the box spinner
At the Luzhniki Stadium
Yet another World Cup winner
 
All eyes on the Madrid star
After his hat-trick against Spain
Maroc lost the bid too
A whole kingdom feels the pain
 
It took the captain four minutes
Morocco failed to spot the threat
Diving onto Moutinho’s cross
An unstoppable header in the net

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Suarez swoops to send Charrúas through
Uruguay 1-0 Saudi Arabia

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Luis Suarez once again
Creates World Cup history
The very first Charrúa
To score for Uruguay in three

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 One nil suits his team fine
Atletico Madrid on the global stage
Saudi were at best lacklustre
They seriously need to engage

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Top of the table with Russia
El Pistolero’s goal will suffice
And to Phil Neville we say
They’ve only won the damn thing twice

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Spain edge Team Melli
Iran 0-1 Spain

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 La Roja scraped a tough win
Sit with Portugal atop of Group B
They made it hard but still
Got an unconvincing victory

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 Spain’s only goal came
After Rezaeian and Costa met
An unlucky clearance
Ricocheting into his own net

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 Team Melli rallied
Smashed home by Ezatolahi
Wild celebrations ensued
But VAR did not agree
