I. UEFA Euro songs
1. UEFA Euro 1996: Three Lions
Three Lions was the theme song for UEFA Euro 1996 given by The Lightning Seeds. As the host as well as the inventor of football, England used this song to welcome football coming home. This song not only became the most popular song that year, but was used to encourage England team in World Cup 2010.
2. UEFA Euro 2000: Campione 2000
As a rock-style song, Campione 2000 brought passion and excitement to Euro 2000. Consequently, some matches of Euro 2000 were viewed as classics. In a match, Italian goalkeeper prevented five penalties from Netherlands and in another match, French won back with a goal in the last minute.
3. UEFA Euro 2004: Força
Just like no one would expect Greek to be the winner of Euro 2004, people never realized the theme song Força could steal the thunder in European Cup. In 2004, two Portuguese left a great impression on us, Cristiano Ronaldo with his football skill and Nelly Furtado with her voice.
4. UEFA Euro 2008: Can You Hear Me
In Euro 2008, the winner Spain surprised the world with its smooth passes, excellent skills and balanced system. However, we were not surprised at the success of Spain just as we held no doubts that Enrique Iglesia could bring us a wonderful song. How about Can You Hear Me? It’s impressive.
