The World Cup starts on Sunday. Canada’s team song ROCKS!

It’s long been a tradition for teams heading to the World Cup to be supported by an official team song. Who, for example, can remember England’s “World in Motion” by New Order for the 1990 tournament?

Canada hasn’t qualified for the World Cup since 1986. Ranked #41 in the world, they’re in a tough group and even a single victory will be a massive accomplishment. (Our 1986 squad failed to score a single goal, but never mind.)

I’m hoping that this rockin’ version of The Beatles’ “Come Together” by Oshawa’s Crown Lands will do the trick. More details on the song here.

We’ll begin to find out on November 23 when we take on the powerhouse that is Belgium.

This sure beats our last team theme from 1986. This is…painful.

One thought on “The World Cup starts on Sunday. Canada’s team song ROCKS!

  • Disappointed. All the original, new music coming out of Canada and a cover song of a British classic rock band is chosen. I suppose we are still just a colony.
