As part of our World Cup 2018 warm up we’ve taken 24 classic album covers and mashed them up with 24 classic world cup moments with sometimes hilarious results. Here's our selection for Group Two. You can see Group One here.
The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground & Nico
The Golden Boot...almost as iconic as Warhol's banana (but not quite as tasty). Past winners include Eusébio, Gerd Müller, Mario Kempes and Gary Lineker in 1986.
Pulp - Different Class
After a brutal final Spain graduated from the World Cup 2010 with honours. They were definitely in a “different class” to their opponents.
Radiohead - The Bends
Wayne Rooney's sending off during England's quarter final against Portugal in the 2006 World Cup was eclipsed only by Ronaldo's 'wink'...endearing himself even more to legions of footie fans.
Handel - Messiah
Argentina 1986 and Maradona’s “Hand of God” moment was quickly followed by the 'Goal of the Century'...but how did Lineker miss that sitter at the end of the game?
All 24 album covers are on display in our studio window in Liverpool, until England get knocked out the tournament - so you’d best be quick.
