On the Eleventh Day…

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Ingerland
Knock Panama into a cocked hat,
I raise my cap to Gareth and the chaps.
Los Cafeteros
Go to The Poles
It’s a landslide.
With the reliable Honda driving them on
Step up a gear to earn a draw with Senegal.


Ingerland, Japan, Senegal, and Columbia made for a blinding day in front of the T.V. I couldn’t hear a word – of commentary – during the Colombia/Poland game, it actually felt like their fans were sat bedside me cheering in my living room. It’ll be a great night of partying over at the Elephant and Castle this evening – where there’s a huge Columbian community – after todays blinding performance and win.

Go well, be lucky and keep smiling.
