Our Lisbon Lions


Our Lisbon Lions – resplendent, preened,

emerged, emboldened for the fray;

decked out in most distinctive garb:

alternate hoops of white and green.


The mission clear - confront the foe;

put anti-football to the sword;

by total, joyous running free,

lay sterile Catenaccio low.


Our Lisbon Lions, so bold, so brash,

absorbed a cruel early blow;

unleashed a football tsunami -

Herrera’s prima donnas smashed.


The “Lions Lost” will ever be

in hearts and minds embedded deep.

Our Lisbon Lions we hail today

... immortalised eternally.
