Best European & World Cup Soccer Songs

The Top TenXW

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

The best Soccer world cup ever. Ricky Martins Cup of life was immensely popular and the entire spirit of the event was apread across the world. Ricky was in his peak at the time of this song and also the video was simply the best!

It's the best song for French World Cup with so much hype and popularity! I think that this one would've been very popular whenever it came out and, really, I wish it would be featuring in the future FIFA WCs in case not to be forgotten just 'cause it was such a great one.

Are you Kidding me with Nelly's Bango on her knees song. plZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Ricky did it right! With power and passion, just like the game and it's fans.

Lots of childhood memory with that - Rhapsody

2Shakira - Waka Waka (World Cup 2010)

You can actually feel it, I think she did a marvelous job. When I heard it I fell in love with it and from the start of the world cup you could feel the emotion of the people that were there cheering for their country.

Love the song! Great inspiration not only for the championship but for everybody who is struggling with dayly problems. My favorite from all~

"This time for Africa"... A superb song about Africa, the host continent of this event - MatrixGuy

None of these songs.. but I picked cause she is 2... 1 is ole ole for FIFA 2014

3The Time of Our Lives (World Cup 2006) - Ill Divo With Toni Braxton

a great song about finding the glory - MatrixGuy

It's a song that makes people want to listen again and again

4Forca (Euro 2004) - Nelly Furtado

I Think 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 - MatrixGuy

I really loved this song, I am portuguese and I always had tingles and chills listening to this song during the euro, it was truly amazing!

I think this song is simply beautiful, haunting, and has an incredibly amazing message.

One of the best songs for a soccer tournament.

5Un'estate italiana (World Cup 1990) - Gianna Nannini & Edoardo Bennato

No way this is not the number one of all time. Even FIFA recognized it as the best ever. By the way before any comment is made. I am american, and even I know better. Un'estate Itliana will alwaysbe the best world cup song ever.

it captures the essance of not only italy, but the feeling around the world

The best song of world cup ever. Emotive like anyone.

Best best best... The Italian version is amazing!

6Campione (Euro 2000) - E-Type

Not as good as La Copa De La Vida but definitely better than Waka Waka!

The most dynamic and fitting song for a big tournament - MatrixGuy

It's phenomenal, specially the chorus

7K'naan - Waving Flag (World Cup 2010)

I WONDER WHY THIS SONG can't REACH TO THE TOP. YOU KNOW WHAT, THIS SONG WAS MOST DOWNLOADED THAT YEAR AND SEARCHED IN GOOGLE TOO. BUT GOD KNOW WHY PUBLIC HAVE VOTED OTHERS. THIS SONG WAS SO PRAISED THAT MORE THAN 10 COUNTRIES HAD MADE A SONG FOR THEM BASED ON THIS SONG. ANYTIME OF MY LIFE, I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS SONG.

No question about that this song is been translated into 18versions 18languages so come on guys let's feel the freedom

This song is amazing. I personnally loved the original which was about the troubles in his home country, Somalia but the World Cup version is great too. And he basically telling us to unite! This guy is a poet. And no doubt this song was popular all over the world so, it should take the number 1 spot. K'naan deserves it.

This is the best song ever...
