Switzeland Spain & Italy Triumph E24 #2

Magyars toil in vain

Swiss roll over Hungary

in a sea of red

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

with Yamal’s sweet pace

though outnumbered in the stands

Spain lay down their mark

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

shocked from the word go

holders sink Albania

to restore their pride

WWC23~The Gold

The Gold is near
Someone will be the winner
“The Ladies don’t fear” I sing

Congratulations to the Lionesses

Someone wil be the winner
The Ladies don’t fear

Time To Bring it Home ~ WWC 23

there again at last
Lionesses on the brink
time to bring it home ~

(Australia 1-3 England)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
cagey from the start
settled in the late last show
La Roja are through

(Spain 2-1 Sweden)

Australia Nigeria Japan & Spain Through WWC ’23

~ Canada 0-4 Australia ~

waltzing on they go
bold Matildas find their best
Canada are out

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~ Ireland 0-0 Nigeria ~

flying safely through
Super Falcons battle on
Ireland win respect

~ Japan 4-0 Spain ~

Japan top the group
Spain collapse but still survive
after four goal blitz

~ Costa Rica 1-3 Zambia ~

in this dead rubber
Zambia impress too late
as both team depart

Fratelli d’Italia.

A re-ignited Spain, should be applauded
Their efforts praised, and rightly lauded
Luis Enrique (of Gijon), prepped a proper mustard team
Hats off to an out of sorts Alvaro Morata
A shadow up-front, an area he often failed to flatter
Whom under death-threats, kept alive a nation’s dream.

Once again, Italy, catenaccio in their DNA
Stand resolute (as one) to seize the day
Tis a sight to see a committed team defend for fun?
Yet despite the classic Italian counter attacks
I thought Forza Azzurri might well win the match…
Witnessing their incandescent Fratelli d’Italia sung.

Italy spot on

toe to toe they ebb and flow

Spain leave heads held high

We’ve Won in Rome. We’ve Won in Rome…

In there, fighting still
Beating Ukraine four goals to nil
On a balmy night in The Eternal City…Rome.

Time to shower, board a plane
Fly back to Blighty, face The Danes
On Wednesday night in our Eternal Home.

Say…we dispatch the marauding Danes?
Are we a match for Italia or Spain?
On current form? I’d say the answers…yes.

Tis looking like this could be our year?
Let’s raise the roof, scream aloud n cheer,
Support the chaps…in their quest for success.

On the subject of success, though I digress,
Please raise a glass, come Monday next,
To 73 years, of our absolutely blinding…NHS.

We’ve won in Rome
We’ve won in Rome
We won four-nil, last night in Rome!
The road goes ever on, t’wards our Eternal Home.
