20 Best Fifa Songs of the decade

Seeing as we're approaching the end of the decade, along with the release of Fifa 20 - I thought it would be "interesting" to make a list of my favourite Fifa songs of this decade.

I'm unlikely to buy the next game, as my enjoyment of the franchise has slowly deteriorated over the decade (mostly thanks to FUT), but the tunes have been fairly consistent and great.

It was fairly nostalgic for me to go through the soundtracks to these games, and to be honest I would give EA Sports a lot of credit for how these playlists are curated. Personally, music will always come before both football and video games, so I've always had a great appreciation for their soundtrack.

Obviously, this just my personal list and feel free to critique or create a list of your own

Can't believe nobody has mentioned Fuego by Bomba Estereo from I think Fifa 13. Don't understand a word she's going on about but could never resist attempting to try sing along to it.

That Tom Grennan one from 18 is a beaut too.

Lol so many Song 2 fans...

It's best songs of the decade people!!


----------------------------------------------------------------------
I didn't realise it was so long ago. Holy crap.

I got the first FIFA when it came out(international 94 I believe) and it genuinely felt like the Song 2 one was a lifetime after it. Turns out it was the 98 one which I remember was highly geared towards the World Cup in France, which i attended.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
FIFA International was the first game in the franchise, I had it on the Mega Drive and played two-player with a friend all the time. You could score from like 40-50 yards out, regularly, or just pump it up the pitch and volley it in.

FIFA '98 was cool, the button which would let you crop people, which usually led to a straight red but was good if you were getting hammered and just wanted to take it out on the other team, I think it was the first game with different stadiums?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I had 94 for the Super Nintendo but it was 95 on the Mega Drive that had me hooked. It still didn't have the licenses for the real names but you knew who was who.

I used to call round to my uncle's, who's a massive United fan. I was ten years old and we used the have very heated games against each other. He was 30 but hugely competitive no matter who he was playing

He used the score with the number 7 who of course was Cantana and do the whole oh ah Cantana chant in my face. So one day I called round when he was at work and transferred Cantona from France into Liverpool, so we both had him. I set the game up and was winning whilst he was getting angrier and angrier that I had Cantona in my team and then it happened. I popped up right on the corner of the 18 yard box where basically every goal was scored from in the 95 and 95 game and popped it into the top corner and got in his face oh ah Cantona. He kicked me out. When I got home he was on the phone to my mum telling her that I was banned from his house for transferring Cantona into the Liverpool team. I repeat, he was 30 years old!
