1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 As the fans toot
The players boot clenches the ball
As it is his call to score and send his team to the premier life

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Away they go into the goal
for the goal is bowl where the ball should go
1 – 0 it goes the fans go wild
1 – 1 it goes, the grim feeling haunts fans and players alike what might have been

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Extra Time has faded away into the distance
As a penalty shoot out is upon the horizon
40 million for the winners and nothing for the losers
The first shot is taken, in its goes
the second goes and it is 1all on penalties
to the confidance players the dream is over
As the oter team fled into the future
