Let’s just go through that again slowly

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Free-kick about 25 yards out.
About 7 minutes remaining. Rooney
Has the ball in his hands, ready to place it
For the kicker. Who happens to be Giggs.
Who enquires, nonchalantly, of the referee
If he can take the kick. The camera
Is focussed on this, but what we can’t see
Is that Lille haven’t got their wall sorted out.
So it shouldn’t really come as too much of a shock
When Giggs sweeps the ball into the far left-hand corner.
Goal. Is there any need to run through it again?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I picture Giggs and Rooney
Two old footballers, long ago retired,
Still having a laugh about that one.
If there is a future.
