With every international tournament that England enter, you can always be sure of two things. Firstly, England will go out on penalties. Secondly, a football song will be released to roar our boys onto victory misery. In Euro ’96 we had the classic, Three Lions. Since then, with a few expectations, each song has been as disappointing as England’s performance.

Judging by the song for this year’s World Cup, it appears things haven’t changed.

I’ll save you the bother of listening to the drivel and causing your ear drums to bleed. The song, if you can call it that, is performed by various football commentators. Part of the track includes a section where a commentator acts out a penalty shootout win for England in the World Cup final.

It really is cringe-worthy. After listening to it, I just wanted to climb into a cave and die.

It would have been far better and more realistic if Alan Green had taken part and included the lines “this game is terrible”, “the referee is having a shocker” or “that is a disgraceful dive by Ronaldo!”

Still, we’re not the only country to release a World Cup song. France are apparently doing one themselves – Thierry Henry had a hand in it.

    LOL! What a pile of tosh. Might as well have a loop of Clive Tyldesley screaming “ROOONNEEEEYY!!” over and over again to hiphop background music.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
