It ended not with a whimper
But rather a sigh
We fought so hard
But Wondo shot high
Overtime was cruel
As Belgium scored twice
Bloodied, but unbowed, we battled
Julian Green's goal was pretty nice
Over and done once again
The pain, for the fans, is unbearable
Is it the end of the dream?
No, it is just the beginning
We will achieve the unimaginable
And win it all ... in 2018
