Oh America!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 America, we just played our first match,
The first goal came off a McBride header the goalie couldn’t catch.
John O’Brian finished it in the back of the net,
Into the game 6 minutes, we haven’t even broken a sweat!
After 40 minutes we’re up three to zip,
Portugal pulled one back before the US know what hit em’,
Its half time, the US losing their rythem!
The second 45 starts with a flurry,
A cross comes in a hurry,
Agoos isn’t on his toes,
Yep, you guessed it, in it goes.
The score is 3-2 now,
The US can’t believe how,
Portugal is back in the running,
They felt that another goal was coming.
The US hold off the team,
We win! That’s how it seemed!
We ran around shouting with glee,
USA 3 Portugal 2… Yippee!
