VIDEO : Top 10 Greatest FIFA World Cup Anthems

The countdown has started as the FIFA World Cup 2014 is coming this June with a mission to enchant all the football lovers around the globe. Footballers and fans will unite to celebrate the occasion and leave with memories to cherish for a lifetime. And to celebrate the event, we always have artists and composers who brighten up the tournament with their inspirational and heart touching songs. From 1962, this idea of composing official songs for the World Cup emerged and since then we have had many songs created for the purpose of enlightening the various editions of the World Cup over the years. With Pitbull and J Lo working on the new “We are One” track which is due to come out with a promotional video for the summer event in Brazil, we highlight the 10 best anthems that have rocked the Cup and left a lasting impression on us.
