Euro 2024: Round 1: Mbappé bopped

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 “There is little difference
between obstacle and opportunity.
The wise are able to turn both
to their advantage”. Machiavelli

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We just need Foden
to turn both defenders
slide an inch perfect pass
into the onrushing Kane…..
and all will be right, in our world again

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Failing that
it’ll be back to our bed-time reading
about Reacher
or some obscure teacher
and their sour-puss side-notes
designed more to get up-votes
rather than really delve
into the intricacies
of Proust or Beaudelaire

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 My take is
as I carry on my everlasting love affair
that no-one can finish
as well as Giroud the grandee:
for opportunity knocks
while Mbappé recuperates
sipping brandy

Notes

Round 1

England beat Serbia 1-0, but not a convincing performance.
Scotland lose in the competition opener, to hosts Germany, 5-1.
Kylian Mbappé breaks his nose in an aerial challenge. France 1-0 Austria.
