2011 top the group

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 From Karen Carney’s precise through ball
Young Ellen White dispatches with a lob
One – nil to Eng-erland
Puts us ahead – just the job!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Jess Clarke crosses
Ellen again, tries the spectacular
“England have a number nine to be proud of ….”
Nice to hear that back in the vernacular!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And then a pair of Rachels
Settles it for sure
Unitt lays it in
And Yankey twists to score!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Martin Keown says of the French
“their chins’ll be on the floor”
We’ve now avoided Germany
Let’s ‘Hope’ it’s semis “je t’adore!”

Notes

England vs Japan, group match, Augsberg, Germany, Women’s World Cup Finals 2011

England win 2-0 to top the group, thus avoiding Germany.
We play France in the Q-F.

Obvious pun on ‘Hope’, as in England manager Hope Powell, but – has to be done! 😉

C’mon ladies!
