Get set for all of the Three Lions’ games at EURO 2020 by listening to some of the biggest, best and most iconic football songs on our England Playlist on Spotify and Deezer.

Gareth Southgate‘s side have the nation’s hopes behind them, as they hope to build on the success of reaching the FIFA World Cup Semi-Finals in 2018. They qualified for the Euros with relative ease, winning seven and losing only one of their eight Qualifying Group A games to seal their place at the tournament for the ninth time.

One year on from when it was originally scheduled to take place, the European Championships begin on Friday June 11 with Turkey facing Italy in Rome’s Stadio Olimpico. In what will be a first for the tournament, matches will be hosted in 11 cities across the continent, with Wembley hosting all three of England’s game along with both Semi-Finals and the Final.

Three Lions captain Harry Kane will lead the team out of the tunnel for their Group D opener against Croatia on Sunday June 13, with an eye on revenge after being knocked out by their opponents in the 2018 World Cup Semi-Finals. They then face their oldest rivals Scotland on Friday 18 and close the group stages against Czech Republic on June 22.

Whether you’re lucky enough to get along to one of England’s group games at the home of football, heading to the pub with your mates or getting comfortable on the couch in your living room during the tournament, make sure to get yourself in the mood ahead of every kick off by listening to and following our England Football Songs Playlist, featuring 100 songs from a variety of artists.

The playlist is topped by Baddiel & Skinner‘s classic collaboration with The Lightning Seeds, ‘Three Lions’. The track rode the wave of national pride during the competition to return to the the top of the UK Single’s Chart for the first time in 20 years in July 2018. It also set a new record for the number of times that a song has had spells at No.1 with the same artist line-up, with two appearances at the top on its initial release in 1996 and returning to the summit in 1998 and 2018.

Other iconic Three Lions classics on the playlist include New Order‘s Italia 1990 tune ‘World In Motion’, Fat Les’ smash hit ‘Vindaloo’ along with other football favourites from The White Stripes, Kasabian, Dario G and Gala.

The England Football Songs playlist also includes a host of the biggest new tunes courtesy of Shoot Music, including including the Official EURO 2020 song ‘We Are The People (feat. Bono & The Edge)’ by Martin Garrix, Gaulin & Julian Perretta‘s dancefloor take on iconic football anthem ‘Seven Nation Army’ and Artist United Collective‘s cover of ‘All Together Now’.
