1962 was the first year with an official FIFA World Cup song. Since then no FIFA World Cup song has been complete without a theme song. The most famous year without a doubt was the 2010 FIFA World Cup when both Waka Waka by Shakira and Wavin’ Flag by K’Naan could be heard resounding throughout the world. These theme songs not only get people excited for the tournament but also give people across the world a medium to connect over the beautiful game.
