As part of our intensive training preparations for the World Cup 2018, we’ve taken 24 classic album covers and mashed them up with 24 classic world cup moments with sometimes hilarious results.
Here’s the first four to wet your (referee's) whistle.
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
1970 Mexico - iconic moment when Bobby Moore and Pele swap shirts after England v Brazil group stage game.
The Beatles - Help
World Cup referees - remember that with great power comes great responsibility... and plenty of flak.
The Smiths - Meat Is Murder
1990 Italy - Terry Butcher’s “braveheart” performance in the 1989 qualifier against Sweden. Alas we won the battle but not the war.
Simon & Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Waters
Wayne Bridge & John Terry were stalwarts of England and Chelsea’s back four... alas Terry was the one who made it on to the score-sheet more often.
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.
