Ode To European Football

Excellence Award in the 'Write Here Write Now 2017' competition

The beautiful game,
Which is anything but lame.
Some Australians call it awful,
I call it European football.
There's nothing better than when your team wins the cup,
Or when your team is losing but they don't give up.
Whether it's the Champions League or the Cup Of Nations,
They'll always meet your high expectations.
There's nothing more intense then when it goes to penalties,
Especially if it's your teams worst enemy.
Whether they completely miss or ace the shot,
You'll always know the battle was well fought.
