Weekend Read: The music of the World Cup

With World Cup fever reaching its global crescendo this Sunday, there’s no better time to read up on some vital stats… not about the players, though!

Instead, we’re talking about the singalong crowd chants, the unofficial anthems, the best and worst World Cup songs, and links between sports psychology, upbeat pop music and victorious football teams.

Some of the world’s best writers have delved into the link between music and the the so-called “beautiful game,” and some of our favourites articles are below.

Happy weekend reading – and may the best team win!
