"Sportchestra! ‎– 101 Songs About Sport".
lyrics by Duncan 'Dunst' Bruce

Sportchestra! ‎– 101 Songs About Sport

Il disco contiene 101 canzoni sullo sport. Ma lo sport è solo il pretesto per parlare di altro.
In questa canzone si confrontano 2 partite:
la finale dei mondiali del '66 tra Germania Ovest e Inghilterra, una sorta di 3a guerra mondiale, in cui Goeff Hurst fece una tripletta (l'unica della storia) ma con un gol fantasma;


Il quarto di finale dei mondiali di Messico '86 in cui l'Argentina sconfisse l'Inghilterra con 2 goal di Maradona: il goal più bello del mondo e la mano de Dios, "vendicando" la guerra delle Falkland/Malvine
Come on admit it, it never crossed the line
Geoff Hurst's goal in extra time
In the Third World War at Wembley '66
When England won again, to make it a hat-trick
Twenty years later, a replay of another war
The Falklands, Spirit against the skill of Maradona
The Union Jack's drooped, the English were quiet
The Argies won, Maradona had a hand in it
The line between patriotic bigotry and loyal support
Is it going to war or the simple love of sport?
