Euro 2008 II : it doesn’t add up

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A game of two halves
lost the first
won the second;
so, with 3 points not even required
was it honours even
the draw desired?
Could it be inferred
that qualification followed?
Nah, both hope and pride swallowed
Coz overall
In the last third
They bossed it
And we lost it
