A Football Poem: England – The Underdogs of Euro 2016

England are the underdogs,
that is plain to see,
They’re in the Euro 2016 –
and Rooney’s hurt his knee!
We never seem to do well –
and we never win a trophy,
Will we win this competition –
and revel in the glory?

We all stick together, and
play our very best,
But, sadly, as we all do know –
we always fail the test.
We are manged by Roy
Hodgson – who is always
in command,
But on occasions we do
play naff – and he grabs
us by the hand.

We only just qualified –
that is the shocking
So, if we do ever win a
game, we may feel so
We are to play Wales,
the country of song and
But if England do beat
them – the world will
all rejoice!

We must be all positive –
and hail the England
football team,
But, sadly, at the moment –
winning is just a dream.
Maybe we can enlist some
help – especially for free;
‘How about little Fleetwood
Town – or even Accrington

England need to concentrate
and be more positive,
Our cynicism they will
Take each game as it
comes – like the side of
They should look to the
future – there is no quick

We must play like we are
“world class” – and hold
our heads up high,
Because if we fail again –
we’ll all be hung out to
Our manager’s, too, they
need to pick all the very
best players,
Or, we’ll end up like Paul
Gascoigne – it’ll all end in
a flood of tears!

So, come on you England –
do your duty, do it for the
Go to Euro 2016 – show
everyone you’re mean!!!!
With your heads held high,
you all stand proud, and
you want to “kiss your
Show the world we are
“superstars” – or we’ll
quickly know our fate!

But let us look to the
future – as we all have
had enough.
What the England football
team really needs is; ‘ a
manager like Sir Brian
So, hail, hail, and hail
again, will England win
the day?
Only if they are managed
by; ‘the ghost of Sir Alf
