Post Match Report: England Vs. Uruguay

Post Match Report: England Vs. Uruguay

We're not on the terraces
nor in Rio de Janeiro seats,
but on the two-seater-sofa somewhere
in Yorkshire and Rooney equalisers
to draw
one - one.

The Uruguay guys are in blue
can’t believe it,
England and their supporters can’t believe it,
and Mum from Yorkshire is screaming blue
murder and she can’t believe it;
Townsend is safe with his job though,
the commentary to my right is less than
comprehensive, stock phrases
of kick it forward echo through the halls on repeat
as the ITV feet in the commentary box
stamp on concrete, the crowds
wave arms of Mexican proportions,
pint glasses are raised wanting more football
and Uruguay have
just
got
another
goal:
Su├írez 'round the back in complete control.
