Dancing Diego Destroys Diables

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Scything the Rode Duivels
Cuciuffo trapped a Belgian
Valdano’s deft flick inside
Diego seized possession

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Three days after ‘Hand of God’
Armando sublime on duty
Slalomed and powered the rouge
With brilliant mesmeric beauty

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Steaming a defensive three
Waltzing Diego undisputed
Shoeing aside a fourth
Jean Marie Pfaff rooted

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Number 7

1986 semi final v Belgium. Definitely on a par with Diego’s second against England.
