Denmark 1-1 Australia

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Australia are still in it
With Jedinak so trusty
Securing the first point
Against the Danes in Group C

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Eriksen with a stunner
Cancelled by the Aussie penalty
Yussuf Poulsen’s handball
Thanks video assistant referee

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Aaron Mooy went close
Sisto almost with a goal

As Age Hareide’s side take pole

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Les Bleus reach last sixteen
France 1-0 Peru

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 If France have a blazing weapon
It’s Mbappé’s youthful flame
It was left to the young star
To decide an absorbing game

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Les Bleus are the third team
To clinch a spot in the last sixteen
Los Incas could’ve shocked
Had Gareca’s strikers been more keen

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 So France’s youngest World Cup scorer
Is a mere nineteen years old
Tapping in a Paul Pogba pass
To think things stone dead cold

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 Argentina on the brink
Argentina 0-0 Croatia

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 With Ronnie on four goals
Would Messi start to shine?
Already playing catch up
We’re assured it’ll all be fine

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 A clanger from Caballero
Ante Rebic with a super volley
Modric hammers in a blinder
You can’t just scapegoat Willy

15 Leave a comment on verse 15 0 And as the seconds ticked away
Rakitic applied the handcuff
Now even a win against Nigeria
May not be quite enough
