Vintage, 8-bit Ronaldinho
On the Seine, red lights and wild sensation
Gave way to greater fire and contest
Madrid ignored the revelation
For despite the wonder he possessed and showcased fortnightly
The Brazilian had features closed to commercial exploitation
Beckham’s hair and face impressed, and introduced us to Keira Knightley
Though the joke would always be on them
As that grin full of genius brought a bucket of trophies to the Catalan men.
We’re delighted to be working with Matheus, the man behind 8-bit Football, as we head into 2013. Poetry by Max Grieve and Eric Beard.
