Ray Skyrme is back, with a well-versed preview of Tuesday's semifinal in Dortmund. Take it away, Ray:
GER v ITA
In the bars and Bierhalle in Munich,
Dressed in lLederhosen and green tunic,
The Vaterland’s fans
Dance to umpapa bands:
Their team’s fate in this fight will be Punic.
Meanwhile up on the fair Palatino
Eating pasta and sipping red vino,
Sing, of their casus belli:
Vinceremo domani, bambino!
