Euro 2020, 16th June 2021

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Oh boy
That Michael Jackson could sure boogie with his brothers
Long before he thrilled us with Thriller….

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Yes, I’m channel hopping
For there’s no tension as the Azzurri steamroll the Swiss

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Unlike the classic the other night
Ukraine vs the Dutch
Where the Oranjeboom, fight back to stay in touch

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And tonight
The determined Welsh Dragons
Snorting fire from nostrils aflare
Put in a performance that can only declare
Gareth and the boyos are not bailing out yet!
Let no-one forget
How they astonished us all in 2016
And they may just do so again
In a way unforeseen!

Notes

Wed 16th June 2021

Group A
Turkey 0-2 Wales
Italy 3-0 Switzerland

Wales were magnificent tonight, especially Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale, who were both muted in the first game (1-1 vs Switzerland).
