Match stretches on in characteristic fast pace intrigue

Multiple shades of play painted in skillful touch

Deadlock holds in classic protract within regular play

Riveting spectator along seat edge in ecstatic thrill

touch-line comes alive in sudden frenzy

Applause rents air in intense resounding glory

Reminiscent stir of the substitute

Making his way in

Before all things


Like an eagle intent on purpose he advances

Lighting up the pitch with optimism and enduring promise

He sparkles on target like a stitch on time

Making amends in bridge rebuild

Life overflows in glorious relish ever after

Masterpiece display unfolding

All is well that ends well

Thanks to the stir

Of the substitute
