beating Holland in the 2010 Final  (here)

Excitement in the
Air could not hide frustrations
Of some team members

Soccer fans were just
As bewildered seeing giants
Left by the wayside

Big names had gone home
But new heroes  were there to
To fill the vacuum

Spate of signings to
Vie for pearls that shine could well
Trigger free-for-all

Next transfer window
Would be closely watched for faces
Of high priced players

Note: One is asked to delve into what is
happening at this moment in time
