The Retirement of Jason McAteer

Jason, thank you very much
For those two goals against the Dutch.
That’s what you’ll be remembered for,
Although you gave us so much more.

Especially the one that bounced
Just fractionally before you pounced.
You slammed the ball past van der Saar,
And underneath the orange bar.

And don’t forget that famous strike,
Extolled by friend and foe alike,
That won the World Cup for our team.
So sad that it was just a dream.
