Euro 2008: day 11 – Italia 2-0 France: Allez Le Bleus

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Domenech’s army instructed to go full throttle
The champs very much the same
No swansong for Thuram who had lost the bottle?
Sprinting for cover before the game

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Pack shuffled with Abidal joined Gallas
No sleep lost for Donadoni
As the Roman juggernaut floored the gas
A dubious tumble from Luca Toni

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Jet lagged strikeforces were truly off pace
Finishing left at the counters of Bon Marche
Proof with Luca and his cursed bootlace
Bringing back fond memories of Guivarc’h

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Thierry determined to don his shooting boot
Roman intervention proved a Godsend
As De Rossi steamed in with raised strike foot
Pity it was the wrong end

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 French future assured with Karim and Samir
As victory for the land of the Lira
Horror show will cost Raymond very dear
Very much the end of an era

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Number 7
