1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Dreams galore in the Cathedral Nou Camp, but who will fulfil?
It’s Enzo Bearzot’s squadra Azzurra against Tele Santana’s Brazil

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A Blue victory is a must, their fate finely balanced on a seesaw
Red hot favourites Brazil though would go through with a draw

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Living artists ply their wares, Socrates, Eder, Falcao, Cerezo
For Barcelona see Sao Paolo, El Jogo Bonito

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 But trouble seems to lurk in paradise, a hungry assassin primed for a redeeming hit
Cool, calm and ice cool hitman Rossi clamps his teeth around the bit

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Two years in the wilderness, surely he’s nothing but a misfit
No goals as yet the cynics say, will he ever acquit?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Twenty two master craftsmen serve up one of the best matches ever
A stinging hat trick from an avenging Rossi, never say never

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Three flashes of brilliance, from criminal to darling of the nation
As a nation erupts we hear, a muffled scream, redemption
