Tuesday’s World Cup match between England and Colombia requires revisiting this song

The group of 16 continues at the World Cup in Russia with the final match of the round featuring England vs. Colombia. This is the perfect time to harken back to a song from Kirsty MacColl’s 2000 album, Tropical Brainstorm which features a song called “England 2, Colombia 0.” The song is based on an actual result from the 1998 tournament.

If that doesn’t do it for you, try the “Scumbag” version.
