EURO 2020 Squads

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 For the football poet in search of rhyme
EURO 2020 is a prime time.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 There are at least two Dutchmen called de Jong,
three Spanish Silvas and the list is long

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 of Danes whose surnames end –son, I count nine;
while Swedish –sen could be their starting line

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 up. There are nine Poles with names ending –ski,
and fourteen North Macedonian –skis.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Some are tricky. Would you know what to do
with Turkish names that end –oğlu?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Whilst others will be as easy as pie
like Italians who finish with an – i

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 or those Austrians who end –ger or –er,
as long as you can fit in a Baumgartlinger.
.
Croatia come top with –ićs like Modrić
plus fifteen more who could be on the pitch.
