Blind football at the London 2012 Paralympics

Brazil 4-0 Turkey

Went to watch the jingle bell ball
Captivated in awe all day long
Knockout tackles saw billboards fall
Think Pirlo paired with De Jong

Double Golds sink Turkey without trace
It's blind football at the Riverbank Arena
Golden boy Jefinho smashes a brace
With the poise of a skilled ballerina

When Ricardinho jinked and wowed
Pin drop hush and a silent wall
Not your raucous football crowd
Saw Jefinho hit the hundredth goal

Number 7
