I had one of those “seemed like a good idea at the time” moments, but this time I actually saw it through.
I decided to create a page which has a song for every country taking part in the 2014 World Cup.
I imaginatively called it…
That’s a link, go and click it.
Like the title of this site that page does as it says on the tin. A song for every country. BUT – I wasn’t that successful at finding something for each country for this World Cup. In those cases I’ve added a filler until something better can be found.
So if you know of a World Cup song – official or unofficial – for any of these leave a comment below, or send a tweet to @FootieAndMusic. Thank you for your help.

Swiss…or Spain…or everybody !
Including this one because of the curiosity: Loco Escrito is a Swiss born (German speaker) who sing/raps – in Spanish. This looks less like a song for Switzerland and more like just a general WM song:
Ervin from Hackney Dragons is a Bosnian living in London and with his mate Emir created this (which has English translation):

It is a very uplifting song which makes me excited for the World Cup competition. Let’s start it now !
Including this one because I created the montage video for the song (because it didn’t have one). It is by Washington DC born Kwami Darko:
These are my choices. Go to the following page to find yours – and as I said if you can help find a 2014 WC song for teams without one, let me know.
