Footballers - Poem by G. Akanji Olaniyi

I think I love Messi
Let God surround me with His mercy
Neither do I hate Ronaldo
He celebrates like Commando
I like Rooney
He is a class above Clooney
I cherish Fabregas
He surely does more than a killer pass
I admire Terry
His zeal and work rate makes him scary
Most times I think of Drogba
He was there well before Pogba
I have seen the display of Ozil
Many a time he looks docile
As safe as the hands of Cech
Strikers must check and recheck
Do you care to romance the ball like Xavi?
Then you must be wise and savvy
Now keep the ball on your feet
Never let it drop inside the pit
