Football Anthems That Rocked the World

World most loved sport, football is back with Euro 2016. Every of this tournament have an official song and this year it is David Guetta's “This One’s for You” is taking the applauds. 
We have jot down the best of the anthems that not only ruled the widely watched tournament in the world, but ruled the Billboards as well.

1. La Copa de la Vida (World Cup 1998) - Ricky Martin

This song is touted as the best World cup official song ever. Ricky Martin's 'Cup of Life' was immensely popular and the entire spirit of the event was spread across the world. Ricky was in his peak at the time of this song and also the video was simply the best!

 

2. Waka Waka (World Cup 2010) - Shakira

You can actually feel it and move along with it. She did a marvelous job. You'll feel the emotion of people that were there cheering for their country and eventually fell in love the moment you hear it and from the start of the World Cup.

 

3. Forca (Euro 2004) - Nelly Furtado
This is the most beautiful song of a European Championship. It talks about the spirit of the force to a team that plays the best and the most beautiful football. No deny about her vocals. Her sultry vocals set the Euro championship on fire.

 

4. Waving Flag (World Cup 2010) - K'naan

This song was dropped off as the anthem of 2010 World Cup due to political reasons, but we still do it is better than 'Waka Waka' and should be the official song of the World Cup. K'naan's lyrics highlights the hunger and passion of the beautiful game and sound is apt for the Somali born Canadian Singer.

 
5. Un'estate italiana (World Cup 1990) - Gianna Nannini & Edoardo Bennato
This song is the number one on the list of 'Best World Cup Official Songs'. Even FIFA recognized it as the best ever. It captures the essence of not only Italy, but the feeling around the world.
