Sweden England Next haiku

Sweden England next
hopefully play-actingless
and a finer game

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sweden 1-0 Switzerland

Zlatanless but through
One deflection is enough
To cut this Swiss roll

furnished with success
flat pack four Ikea like
Sweden build their home

ten man Swiss compound
Blagult are still in the mix
England now await

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Colombia 1-1 England
England win 4-3 on penalties.

dear oh dear oh dear
where on Earth do we begin
to pen our relief?

nervy night again
no Rashford* or Loftus Cheek
we looked poor upfront

through but only just
penalty hoodoo undone
but we must improve

coming home the cry
suddenly on ev’ry lip
wiil it be in tears?

Kane haiku

Kane proves he’s able,
Not the brother of Abel;
But still merciless

Nicely Poised.

An able Kane nets a deuce
Ingerland produce
Inspiring a nation-wide roar
and but for a – it seemed to me –
VeryAverageReferee
Yer man could have bagged three or four!

A word on the interesting Maguire
Though at times looking tired
As he strode through the strength sapping heat…
A la the majestic Scirea
Seasoned Libero and player
Played the game with his brain not his feet!
