Host Becomes Toast

There was a Brazilian side/
Whose players were famed far and wide/
Till one July night/
It all went to shite/
And Germany battered their pride.

Now I must say, while most neutrals were willing Brazil to nick one back at the end out of sympathy, I was praying the German defence would hold. Why? Because ‘Brazil’ rhymes with ‘nil’ of course. Here’s the draft I had ready to send the minute the final whistle went:

There once was a team from Brazil

Renowned for its footballing skill

Till one July night

It all went to shite

And Germany won 7-0.

But the buggers had to go and pull one back!
