Euro 2008 Day 1 – Swiss roll as Turkey roasted

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Though the Swiss shackled the towering Koller
Buckner’s brigade ground out the win
Hobbled Frei caused the hosts a headache
Plan A heading straight for the bin

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 To compliment the towering inferno
Karol searches from Berounka to Yangtse
Though the answer lies much closer to home
Let loose Baros and Matejovsky

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Pepe summed up the Portugese brilliance
Now many gamblers will stake and pledge
The Vulcan’s (Volkan) defence breached twice
Less because of no Portugese cutting edge

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Will someone remind Tuncay
It’s months before the Beijing dream
Olympic antics an absolute disgrace
But a certain gold for the diving team

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Number 7
