2014 world cup: 10 songs that kick balls

The 2014 World Cup is upon us, so here are 10 songs about football (or soccer). From the official song of the 1990 World Cup to the White Stripes’ Seven Nation Army.

There’s always been a strong link between music and soccer, think about chorus chants. Here are ten songs that, in one way or another, have to do with soccer. From Un’Estate Italiana, the official song of World Cup Italia ’90, to Seven Nation Army by the White Stripes (Italy’s victory emblem of World Cup Deutschland in 2006), from Mas Que Nada (that became part of the football consciuosness thanks to a 1998 commercial of a sportswear brand) to You’ll Never Walk Alone in the version by Gerry & The Pacemakers that was formerly written for the musical Carousel but then has become Liverpool official song.
