WC2014 Day 20 Argentina 1 Switzerland 0 (aet)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Messi, at the death, shrugged off the knocks
and was, by far, the fastest off the blocks,
just as the final bell was nearly chiming.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Passed to di Maria in the box,
he of sweet left foot and shaven locks,
whose cannon shot was ready for the priming.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The Swiss were like a team of shell-shocked crocks,
hens outwitted by a crafty fox
and back from this late blow there was no climbing.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 They nearly pulled off one of the great shocks,
but for a country famous for its clocks,
it really was a lousy piece of timing.



Ah well, we did better than anyone expected. Hop Schwiiz!
