World Cup day 9

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Coutinho and Neymar leave it late
Brazil 2-0 Costa Rica

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 In Phil Coutinho
Seleção Brasileira have an ace
The Barcelona playmaker
Runs the hard race

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Costa Rica set up well
Douglas Costa came in flying
They’d shed Brazilian skin
Even had Neymar crying

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And so it looked like the favourites
Had run out of breath
But Coutiinho and Neymar
Swooped to seal it at the death

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Magic Musa at the double
Nigeria 2-0 Iceland

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Close control and a tidy finish
In my book he’s a maestro
Exquisite touch and deft of pace
What if Musa was Latino

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Gylfi Sigurdsson fluffs a penalty
Iceland never in the race
Ahmed Musa for Nigeria
With a magic second half brace

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 The Super Eagles super win
Leaves second spot to grab
Both teams can still do it
Even the Argies still have a stab

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 The Eagle has landed
Serbia 1-2 Switzerland

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Mitrovic pounced
Xhaka’s howitzer was regal
The Swiss are made from sterner stuff
Behold the Albanian eagle

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 With the clock ticking
They looked to share the cake
But Shaqiri’s late stunner
Leaves Serbia with heartache

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 Kaliningrad erupts
Raw emotion in the ground
Rossocrociati in the driving seat
To reach the second round
