Carlos: Allez La France!
Another outing for the French national team tonight, this time against Sweden.
By the looks of things, les Bleues have booked their place in the next round, but hopefully a victory will put them through the group stages undefeated.
So another excuse for one of the tunes that taste forgot, 1998's Allez La France by Carlos, a curious piece of music involving 80s rock, guitar solos and cheerleaders.
Its one from the Vindaloo school of football songs.
Needless today, that was the campaign that saw France win the biggest footballing trophy in teh world.
Carlos was a well-known entertainer, who worked with Johnny Hallyday in the early 60s, and Sylvie Vartin in the mi6 60s to early 70s. He also had his own musical career that spanned the decades from the 60s until his death in 2008, as well as a cartoon series and tv and radio appearances.
