World Cup


An ode to a Belgian team giving their all in a quarter final to beat the mightiest football nation of its time…


When experience is your guide
and skill is nursed
When Ignorance is crushed
and defeat defeated
When tactics play
and play turns to art

A performance is given at its finest…

Witness this wonderful exciting ballet
Eleven players swirling and turning
Handling the ball with frolic twists
Hit the mark to leap in the lead
Until that moment, where tension takes control
A date with pressure like before
But this time they are prepared!
Through wisdom of experience
They overcome the odds
and write history for a nation so small

At last that final whistle
Stress is released
The audience, the people in ecstasy
Victory tastes so sweet…
