Goodbye World Cup 2006

Svenís men, played with all their heart.
Only from this competition, they now depart.
Superb defence, with one man less.
Ordinarily this would leave the best in distress!
Raw emotions, captured live on TV!
Real tear jerker, filled with intensity.
You played your best, for two hours tonight!
Ending with a penalty shoot out, Portugal won outright.  
Now the dream is over, itís a shock for us all!
Going home now, thereís no more football.
Leaving Germany, itís Auf Wiedersehen Sven!
Another time another place and a new manager for our men.
No shame shall be carried, on any one name.
Do better as a team next time, thatís got to be your aim!
