Nation mourned with Matiba
Mexico a thorn for the slayer
One disallowed from Carlos Vela

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Much sharper and more inventive
Free reign Dos Santos creative
Dazzling goal for the grand gala
From Kaiser Chief Sip Tshabalala

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Aguirre riled at Franco’s missed sitter
Khune upright to block the hitter
Came on Blanco, Guardado, Hernandez
Wonder goal cancelled by Marquez

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 United joy the Bafana typify
“The team that gets four points will qualify,”
Words of Carlos Alberto Parreira
Drowned out by the blast of the Vuvuzela
