Day 27 : second meeting

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Brazil 1-0 Turkey

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 This, their second meeting
Turkey, took their beating
So, Germany will be greeting –
Brazil, please Rivaldo, no more cheating
Any more funny antics, and we’ll all be bleating
Sukur, offered no succour, his input only fleeting
Not a classic game, it didn’t have us over-heating
Nor perched on the edge of our seating

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But let’s hope, that in the final, Brazil and Germany, will be treating

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 us, to a game that will have us falling off our seating
hungry for more, even though we’ve been over-eating
provide us with everlasting memories, not those only fleeting
that they’ll give us new tricks to copy, following like sheep, happily bleating
encourage us to show off innovative skills, rather than imitative cheating
so that the whole world, will merrily be greeting
all those competing
wherever friends in football are meeting


For the record :

Semi Final

Brazil beat Turkey 1 – 0

We all thrill
At the skill
Of Brazil
But the winning goal (Ronaldo), was just a toe-poke
What a joke

Incredible fact : Brazil and Germany have won the most World Cups, yet they have never played against each other in the World Cup!

Played 17
Germany won 3
Brazil won 10
Drawn 4

And now Matt Smith, anchor man on ITV’s World Cup Highlights programme, is trying out his poetic prowess, witness this from tonight’s round up :

So in the final, it’s

“The Towering Teutonics versus The Samba Supersonics!”
